Einkaufswagen

Wie entscheidest du dich, wenn Du nachhaltige Nahrungsmittel auswählen möchtest? Wie kannst du dich an einer lokalen Lebensmittelversorgung beteiligen? Wir laden dich ein, im Dialog mit Quartierbewohner*innen Methoden zu entwickeln. Jeder Haushalt in Zürich kann seine Essgewohnheiten verändern, um ein nachhaltiges Ernährungssystem zu unterstützen. Auch Andere haben es geschafft: Nachhaltigkeit beim Essen langfristig in ihr Leben aufzunehmen. Wir bringen Wissen, praktische Beispiele und ganzheitliche Ansätze mit. Aus all diesen Inspirationen finden wir gemeinsame Wege für feste Gewohnheiten im Alltag, die bleiben.

Zürich isst nachhaltig offeriert 3 öffentliche Workshops um unsere Ideen und Absichten in unseren Haushalten in die Tat umzusetzen.
