Lecture Series "Sustainable Land Use and Nutrition"

Since summer semester 2014, a lecture series on "Sustainable Land Use and Nutrition" has been offered in cooperation with the TUM School of Life Sciences.
This English-language lecture is aimed at all Master students at the Weihenstephan campus.

"The lecture series provides an overview on the various prespectives of sustainable land use and nutrition. An introduction establishes the structure of the module, which follows a supply chain. The production of commodities addresses: Availabilty of soil resources; ecology and history of landscapes; terrestrial ecology; horticultural products for sustainable nutrition; integrative land-use concepts; production technology.  The distribution of commodities (transport , storage) is analyzed under the aspects of resource economics, after sustainability of processing.  The distribution through trade and services is focussed by sustainable marketing concepts.  Finally, consumer affairs are addressed by health aspects in the context of global nutrition; food safety; new designed food."
