About

In this course, sustainable food consumption is identified and problematised on the basis of The Global Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the National Food Strategy and the Nordic Nutrition Recommendations.

The course deals with synergies, conflicts and possible solutions for groups in the population when sustainability goals are to be achieved, as well as theories on how sustainable food consumption can be understood.

The course is sustainability-focused, which means that one or more of the course's learning objectives clearly shows that the course content meets at least one of the University of Gothenburg's established criteria for sustainability labelling. This content is also the main focus of the course.
