Our population exploded in the 19th century, when the Industrial Revolution began. Food production increased rapidly, but not necessarily to our benefit. It wasn’t sustainable. We faced a growing population in Britain, when the food production wasn’t enough, overpopulation began. Less and less food was available, and the WWI started. It cause massive famine, and because of the losers side having to pay massive reparations, it caused another war. WWII. The war for resources.
Fifty years from now there can be only 2 outcomes: One of destruction, and one of prosperity. Either we find a sustainable way to feed a growing population, or Earth’s due date will be advanced a few millennia, right to our doorsteps.
To fix this problem, we made a pitch to Chartwells, to propose sustainable meals to feed a small community, MS. Through pitching and research, we found out 80% of the world’s diets are unsustainable, especially in bovine diets.
Some examples of early-on sustainable ideas we generated would be a no-meat diet, or no beef diet, but through further research proved pork and lamb to be similar to beef’s sustainability.
We finally made a common but sustainable dish: curry with free range chicken, potatoes, and carrots.
This project has educated us in the sustainability of foods, and how to change our lifestyles.
