SESSION 2: WATER AND CLIMATE - FUTURE WATER MANAGEMENT IN CITIES
Around 25% of the world's population is currently affected by acute water shortages. But not only in Africa or the Middle East, but also in Southern and Eastern Europe. At the same time, however, we waste a large proportion of our fresh water every day to flush the toilet. Private use accounts for about 60-80% of the public water supply across Europe. As a result, the groundwater level in many cities is falling. New solutions are needed. One of them is to condense water from the air - even in areas of drought, as shown by our partner country Peru.
SESSION 3: A SCHNITZEL IS JUST A STRING OF MOLECULES (SESSION IN GERMAN)
Food is nothing but a string of molecules. A steak and a glas of water each consist of about 1024 molecules. These smallest, multi-atomic particles are responsible for what we taste and for the way food feels in our mouths. Today, we can break down food into its molecules and reassemble them in new and sustainable ways. For instance milk made from fermented microorganisms or in cell-based meats.
