As we watch the war in Ukraine in disbelief, the next global catastrophe is looming. Exploding energy and commodity prices meet reduced production of wheat, corn and oil crops; and on top of that agricultural functionaries are demanding a rollback of environmental measures.
On its educational site 2000 m² Global Plot, the Foundation on Future Farming shows the personal dimension of land use (1,5 billion hectare of arable land divided by 7,5 billion people worldwide provide 2000 m² per person) and the biodiversity and climate impacts of our diet, especially meat consumption. On the field we grow true to size the proportional share of the most important arable crops of the world (including many legumes).
Global Bean projects we are involved in:
Experience with environmental and political education
Exchange of experience in cultivating legumes through simple “cultivation instructions” documentation
Graphic designer and translators for the planned information sheets
