Whats your Action Idea?

With the Instagram account @EatTheScience Sarah (nutritionist to be, MSc) and Hanna (environmental scientist, MSc) provide background, facts about sustainable nutrition. We apply knowledge, test and share our experiences with our followers. Due to our scientific background, we can look at the whole value chain of our food - from the field to the plate. In doing so, we do not want to argue with a raised forefinger, but motivate and inspire. Our contributions are scientifically based and try to pick up the target group emotionally.

What do you need to realize your idea?

We have been maintaining this Instagram channel free of charge since February 2021. In order to continue to provide independent content, both personnel and financial support would be helpful.

How does your idea help our fight for fair and sustainable food system?

Education is a first step in making the switch to a sustainable nutrition. With our channel, we want to - empower consumers to make better consumption choices, - highlight the impact of conventional agriculture on our environment, - raise questions about current systems and practices, - provide solutions, - discuss current political decisions, - and to get into an exchange.

Why is your idea a winner?

We believe that it is the many small nudges and changes that lead to big change. We underline this with our little channel about sustainable nutrition!

Have you already tried the action idea? If so, tell us what you experienced!?

Since February, we have been running the channel @EatTheScience together. Since we do this job part-time it is an up and down. Providing science posts for our audience takes some time, on the other hand it's great to hear people giving feedback, being inspired and changing a habit.
