Breakfast presentation about Local food initiatives and sustainable diets

Everyone is invited to learn more about a local food initiative in Tilburg. The presentation is based on the MSc research of Nicole van Riel.

Date:     Wednesday May 27

Time:     9:00-9:30

Where: Room 3011

What:  For the last six months I have been working on my master thesis, where I studied if participation in a local food initiative contributes to more sustainable diets. To answer my research question, I have done participant observations and semi-structured interviews at one particular initiative: ‘Goei Eete’ in Tilburg. To put the results in perspective, I have made use of transition theory. If you are interested in the findings, you welcome to join the final presentation next Wednesday.

If you are planning to attend in advance, please let me know via so there will be enough croissants (and little food waste!).
