How does sustainability influence the taste and quality of food?

The food system is transforming and the way we handle food is changing. What will we eat in the future and how does ”more sustainable” taste? Does efforts such as more sustainable packaging and shorter transports change the taste and quality of food? Are some culinary experiences simply so untenable that we will look back with disgust?

We will gather a panel of food professionals, researchers and foodies and find out!

Jessica Viktorsson – Nudging the food system

How might we create behavioral change for a more sustainable future? Jessica Viktorsson from Nudging Sweden believes nudging is the way to go – and it’s all about individual choices. Nudging is a way of helping people make better choices in their everyday life. For example – studies has shown that when fruit and greens are placed close to the counter customers are more prone to make the green choice. In 2017 Richard Thaler was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics for bridging the economic and psychological analyses of individual decision-making. He coined the term choice architect and is co-author of the book: Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness. In her talk Jessica will open up the world of nudging and show us how it can be used as a tool in engineering a more sustainable future.

Jessica has a background studying human ecology, social psychology and resilient entrepreneurship. Climate-smart food choices, health and reduced food waste are subjects close to her heart. She has worked at GRAM – Swedens first package-free food store in Malmö and she is also active in the Transition Movement.
