This is a video about what it can look like if we succeed in making our lives more sustainable by reducing the impact of climate change through changing our habits around food.
We show how the future could look like if we start to change today. If we start to eat more local and seasonal food and less meat we will reduce greenhouse gas
emissions significantly. In addition to this we believe that we need to pay more attention to nutrient loops in the future. In the urban gardens of the future there is a need for nutrients and by using local compost it is possible to create a local nutrient loop that is energy
efficient and thus emits less greenhouse gases. As well as using something that would otherwise be wasted, we also reduce the use for artificial fertilizers, which means less energy usage and less greenhouse gas emissions. But there will be trade-offs as well. We cannot eat as much meat as we might want to since it will have to be
