More sustainable behavior is vital

In the coming years, the world will have to respond to a crucial question: how do we feed nine billion inhabitants? Developing sustainable dietary practices is one key part of the answer, but there is nonetheless also a major obstacle: it is a human-dependent solution. Humans are naturally resistant to change, especially behavioral change, when they are not constrained to do so by their environment. Will environmental pressure be enough to convince humans to adapt?

In this file, the Louis Bonduelle Foundation explains how our dietary behaviors have evolved through the ages and takes stock of our current attitudes toward consumption to propose a few possible avenues to follow.
