Saturday lectures spring 2019

Are consumer powers real? Should we exchange meat with avocado from Chile, and how can both meat consumption and food waste increase in spite of everything after a quarter of a year? What politics has created the situation that I have today, and what alternative is there?
As a consumer, it is difficult to know what information to trust when it comes to eating in a climate friendly and sustainable way. At the same time, one can say that there is a big deal in the Storting about how one wishes to develop Norwegian agriculture further. Isn't that a paradox?
In the lecture series "Food policy for dummies", we look more closely at Norwegian agriculture and food production:
