Heidelberg Cooks!

  • Thu, 18.11.2021 - Sat, 20.11.2021
  • Festival, Geist Heidelberg

Our diet is a universal issue that no human being can escape. It is infinitely complex and permeates all areas of society. The “system of nutrition” has long been exposed as insufficient – the consequences of our way of eating will soon be beyond us, from an ecological, health and political point of view.

Heidelberg Kocht!brings together scientists and strong voices from the culinary world on this topic to discuss and taste together with you – time for new perspectives, arguments and solutions!

In cooperation with Über den Tellerrand e.V. and Cuisine Sans Frontières

In the context of the International Science Festival – Geist Heidelberg
