( True Cost Corner Shop)
Tollwood will open a corner shop at the festival. There you will find all kinds of groceries, just like in the old days. What’s the difference to all other corner shops? Here you can see how much groceries currently cost and how much they should be if we were to include all consequential costs. Many exciting insights await you, for example on the consequences of the use of nitrates or pesticides in agriculture and the costs that this creates for society. Take a look!
What’s behind “HoMaBiLe”
What does our food really cost?
Shop price – true price?
Far from it! Prices hardly reflect the real costs.
No one pays for many of the negative climate, environmental and health impacts that result from food production. To remedy this market failure, changes are needed in politics, education, economics and ecology. But what needs to change and how specifically? And what are the social consequences?
A research project by the Universities of Greifswald and Augsburg, in which Tollwood is a practice partner, is investigating this topic. It is callled “How much is the dish? – Measures to increase biodiversity through true cost accounting for food” (HoMaBiLe).
