How do we eat for both pleasure and planet?
August 16-17, 2021

Thank you to everyone for making Creative Tastebuds 2021 special!

Dear all, 

Thank you for participating, discussing, experimenting, eating, enjoying, learning, evolving, thinking and engaging with us at Creative Tastebuds 2021. We are proud and happy about the way the symposium turned out and we hope everyone enjoyed themselves and went home with new ideas, thoughts and questions to ask and answer about taste and sustainability. 

If you as a participant have feedback about the symposium, please send it to us any time!

Regarding postproduction of the recordings from the symposium and distribution of participant list - we will be in touch soon. 

All the best, 

The organizing team. 

Art, science, innovation and gastronomy meet in an interdisciplinary symposium

In a time of climate crisis and increasing global inequality afflicted by hunger and obesity, we are urged to downsize individual pleasures for the sake of our common future on earth.

How can we use our sense of taste to make new and better choices? And can we rely on taste to guide us well?

"A triumph! A totally RETHINK project. Stimulating, thought provoking and subject enlarging. I hope Tastebuds might convert to an annual conference in which we see all matters of food taste, from science to aesthetics, and in between, on the menu and generating in the next generation of makers, thinkers and researchers, the desire to go deeper into food knowledge to improve our relationship to healthy, sustainable and good eating."
