STUBE Seminar

Seminar "Food Crisis - Do we habe to expect ever growing prices for food?"


For Spring 2009 we plan to organize a joint seminar with STUBE, the association assisting students from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, which will be held in Pi-Haus in Freiberg. The 2-days-seminar will deal with the food crisis and attempts to identifiy the main reasons and to work out possible strategies and concepts against it.

Agricultural land is not only used for producing food, but is used for many competing purposes. In 2008 the world experienced a huge rise of the prices for food which  was caused through a number of reasons. One of it being the growing use of and demand for energy crops.
