Foodycle festival organises two battles about empathic eating through various themes. In Protein-battle different protein sources like eg. oat, mushrooms, meat and insects compete playfully. The stories of different protein sources and producers’ visions of them are heard. The audience takes part in imaging what kind of food an empathic consumer chooses.
Food channel -battle searches for alternatives for traditional food supply chains. Why buy food direct from its produces, join a food co-op, start urban farming or using wastage food? In this battle, one can learn about start of alternative food supply channels and how those who invent them, see the future. The audience can take part in imaging from where an emphatic food consumer gets their food.
Urban food festival Foodycle is organised for the fourth time. This time, we explore what is emphatic eating. Contemporary food production and consumption spoil and burden the ecosystems. In addition, the decrease of natural resources like water, oil and minerals for fertilisers challenges the food production. At the same time, the food production system is considered socially and ethically unjust; the natural resources, food, money and well-being is divided unevenly in between people. Could empathy, identifying with another's situation solve the ecological, ethical and social problems of our food system?
The event is in Finnish.
