Have you ever wondered how to combine a sustainable lifestyle with healthy diets and food culture? Let's find out together during our Summer School "Sustainability, Nutrition and Culinary Studies".

Team up with other students and researchers from different universities and research institutions, to discuss sustainable and healthy diets that are also tasty. This Summer School is foreseen as a living lab, based mainly on the recently launched report of the EAT-Lancet Commission and your active participation. We are directly transferring the gained knowledge into practice, which will take place in our food lab Münster (fh-muenster.de/foodlab) and the sensory laboratory during the Summer School week. For this purpose, you will need to sharpen all your senses to try and taste different kind of foods. This also includes cooking meals based on sustainable recipes (friedensteller.de and nahgast.de) and eating lunch together with all participants.

Besides, getting to know interesting speakers and participating in exciting workshops, you can expect common cooking events, our urban gardening project and more. The Summer School will be held in English.

We, the Münster University of Applied Sciences and the Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (iSuN - fh-muenster.de/isun), are looking forward to see you in Münster next summer.
