|30.09.2020 : Loss of BioDiversity
The Climate Change results in nature in a loss of BioDiversity : more and more plants, flowers and animals get lost. "For me as an artist having travelled also to countries in Africa like Namibia, South Africa, Botswana and Kenya with vast unsettled areas I know how important the natural environment is for the development of plants and animals as well as for the human beings. We are all a macro-cosmos linked with each other. It seems that many emotional impressions which I still got during my travels will be irreplaceable lost for future generations!" Marie-Christin Hallier stated presenting some of her pictures of her collection Omnis Mundi Creatura in Germany.
M.-C. had studied art(BA) and art therapy(MA) at the Alanus University in Germany (see more at) and exhibited among others in Kenya parallel to a Food Waste Conference (Link Vernissage Kenya).
|20.08.2020 : Food security around the world
The International Youth Day, observed by the United Nations, is every August 12. This year, 2020, International Youth Day focuses on the theme of youth engagement for global action.
Across the world, it’s often our youngest citizens who are at the forefront of social movements—against gun violence, for more sustainable climate change policies, to bring an end to food insecurity and food injustice.
Food insecurity has been also a topic for the on-line conference of the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN). The conference organized on the 12-13 of August was entitled: Post-Harvest Management in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Across the world, communities are losing control of their local agricultural land. In land grabs around the world, wealthy investors are purchasing plots without community consent and using them to grow profitable crops for export, instead of feeding the local population. That is why the food security is so important for the world population.
|10.04.2020 : Packaging Competence
Mass Production for consumer-goods is only possible by pre-packaging of industry. It is worth to mention according to Prof.Dr.Hallier that in Germany in context of the change of life-style after World War II in 1957 the Institute of Self-Service/ISB (today EHI) was founded to standardize within a dialogue with the branded goods - and package-industry solutions for the new store-formats "supermarkts". Examples of that meanwhile 60 years existing work-shop are publications like technical demands for one-way package or multi-trip.
In 1958 the packaging and machine sector founded the fair "Interpack" - followed in 1966 by the "EuroShop" exhibition of the retail institute : both today world-leaders of competence in their sectors at the Duesseldorf Fair Ground and show-cases for Applied Sciences. "The national GNP is determined by the amount of practical results from Research" Prof.Hallier claims.
