Kestävä ruokatalous

Our third workshop will focus on sustainable food production and food waste. The group will receive a case from Viking Line. 

An idea and goal of a sustainable food future has been the core driving force of my entire adult life. Having grown up as a city kid in Helsinki, New York, Moscow, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, I celebrated my 18th birthday as a volunteer brigadista working on the coffee harvest coffee at a co-operative in the Nicaraguan countryside.

My brief academic career in third world development studies at a progressive college in the US was cut short by my urge to learn agriculture and horticulture in practise I spent two years studying biodynamic agriculture and nature stewardship at an anthroposophic college and after that did a two years work based learning program on two biodynamic farms to receive vocational qualifications from a conventional agriculture school. I stayed at one of those farms, Labby in Isnäs, where i still live today, 20 years later. Since around 2012 i’ve worked more with primary and secondary schools developing ways to utilise gardens and the food system as learning environments of multidisciplinary phenomenological process learning

Over the years i’ve been active in some NGOs and party politics of the Finnish Greens. I hope my experiences can will be of help in the work of the Globsol sustainable food workshop!

JOSEFINE WINBERG (SWE)

Food is a central part of our lives, our culture, our landscapes, and the well-being of our planet. What we eat matters.
I grew up on a farm surrounded by animals and with the possibility to grow and produce a lot of the food that we ate. It taught me to respect farming and food, once I realized how much hard work and resources that are behind it.

My interest in sustainable food has developed over the years with my studies in Biology and Environmental Science, and I have gained new perspectives on the topic by having the opportunity to spend a longer time in Kenya, India and South America. It taught me more about our Swedish food system than I expected, and it really challenged my views on sustainable food systems. My concerns for a healthy planet have encouraged me to activism, on different levels, in different groups. On the side of writing on my master thesis, I work part time in an organic bakery, and I'm a board member of and spokes person for the NGO Future Earth.
