COOKING WORKSHOPS in preparation for the end of the world

"I remember the heat wave in the summer of 2019. We could hardly breathe, the city was an oven because of the asphalt. That's when I realised: life as usual is no longer an option. How can we fight climate change by eating and farming differently?" - De Standaard 

Sien Vanmaele is looking for answers by researching sustainable ways of producing and consuming food. This summer she organized cooking workshops at Oerol Festival, DANSAND! and Zeeland Nazomerfestival. Next phase in her research: zero waste.
