In the March edition of the HU podcast “humboldt hören” (listening to humboldt), THESys Members Peter Feindt and Harald Grethe talk with radio journalist Cora Knoblauch about urgently needed agricultural reforms and animal welfare issues, and discuss the connection between environmental protection and sustainable nutrition.

In the interview, the two agricultural scientists make it clear that a change in our diet is urgently needed for industrialised nations like Germany. However, the problem is not only our excessive consumption of meat and dairy products. In the past decades, politicians have done everything in their power to slow down agricultural reforms. Crises such as the current Ukraine war intensify already existing dependencies and grievances and make them visible to citizens.
