How to design a truly sustainable food system | Rachel Reckinger | TEDxUniversityofLuxembourg

Only a holistic focus on food systems and their sovereignty-struggles will lead to truly sustainable transitions for communities, to curb the effects of climate change. Rachel Reckinger is a food sociologist and anthropologist at the University of Luxembourg and head of the research project Sustainable Food Practices, contributing to current debates on food sovereignty, biodiversity degradation, limits to growth, inequity, the search for more sustainable ways of production, consumption and governance โ€“ as well as policy coherence tackling them โ€“, all requiring a dedicated response from the social sciences. She is also taking part in active policy work with the co-creation of a Food Policy Council for Luxembourg, as a multi-stakeholder discussion and negotiation group for more resilient food system alternatives, and holds a mandate in Luxembourgโ€™s Conseil Supรฉrieur pour un Dรฉveloppement Durable. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
