Food for Thought series

This year, Shift is proud to be part of the organising team for “Food for Thought”, an event that encourages participants to make more conscious decisions about food through both online and offline activities on food circularity and action. The series was organised by the LDE Center for Sustainability Students, together with 7 associations from Leiden, Delft, The Hague and Rotterdam.

On 1st June 2021, Shift hosted Coen Hubers for an online lecture, “To Meat or Not to Meat?“, as part of the week-long Food for Thought series.

In his exciting lecture, Coen Hubers, founder and coordinator of the AgriFood Hub at LDE Centre for Sustainability, answers important questions about the current transition in our system. Questions regarding the impacts of meat substitutes, about the roles animals play in the food system’s supply chain, and questions about how regenerative farming, mimicking healthy natural ecosystems, can benefit the environment.

On June 2, Shift got together with the team from Plastic Spotter Leiden to clean-up the streets of Leiden!
