Nutrition and justice.
Students follow Humboldt's footprint 4.0

The Deutschlandstipendium-Themenklasse "Sustainability and Global Justice", funded by the Stiftung Humboldt-Universität, is now for the fifth time part of IRI THESys. The 16 Bachelor and Master students of the Departments of Geography, Philosophy, Physics, European Ethnology and Economics as well as Agricultural Economics deal with the questions of food labelling and global justice. More specifically they focus on the development of a justice footprint as well as different sustainability labels on the food market.

The development of a justice footprint aims to overthink and complete the already existing ecological footprint. In this year, the students will search for important criteria and develop a concept for such a new footprint.

Furthermore, the students will deal with the sustainability labels for food, especially with those at universities’ canteens. Their research comprises the summary and valuation of the criteria of different labels. The dominating question will be whether such labels are useful or rather confusing for the consumers. To answer this question, the scholars will gather empirical data by interviewing students at Humboldt-Universität. Furthermore, it will be interesting, if certain labels are useful for the university’s canteen. Based on the results of this survey a potential concept of a sustainability label with suitable criteria for canteens will be developed and introduced to the Studierendenwerk.
