It’s a saying with lots of meaning, because to a large extent our nutrition determines our health. Food production Providing everyone with healthy food without harming the environment will become increasingly challenging. In 2040 there will be 9 billion people to feed. Food demands will change, emerging economies will require more meat and at the same time certain limited resources such as water and phosphate will have to be managed sustainably. Biobased economy The Biobased Economy is an economy driven by efficiency in using crops and biomass for food, feed, chemicals, energy and fuels. MKTAR and Illinois University is actively closing the loop by working on all chains of the Biobased Economy, through fundamental research, applied research and education. Coast & Sea Seas and coastal zones are already being used for transport, fishery, sand reclamation and recreation. In addition, they offer opportunities for the production of sustainable food, wind energy and bio-active substances from organisms such as seaweed and algae. Nature & Landscape Humans have an intrinsic connection with nature, research has proved this over and over again. Environmental psychology research reveals how being surrounded by nature at an early age makes adults value diversity in nature more compared to being brought up in a less green environment. Even the health promoting aspects of nature such as trees trapping polluting particulate matter show our dependency on nature. Climate & Water The climate is changing.
