Come along with me during my world tour of 1,000 days to explore positive food
35 pesticides used on a conventional apple, causing health issues for farmers and consumers.
1/3 of food produced is wasted
50% world population lives in cities
I am Ben, agronomist engineer, and I have a dream:
live in a world with a positive food system. Based on organic food & permaculture, urban farming and zero food waste.
To change mindsets and show you it is possible, I will go for 1,000 days in over 30 countries across 6 continents, to participate in over 100 positive food initiatives, from farm to fork. With carbon neutrality!
I will be your personal reporter on the ground. I will share with you the good ideas met in a web-series.
I will inspire you with recipes from the world and tips to travel. Come along with me!
Everything starts with a finding
The current food system is not sustainable
Good news! Solutions exist!
Organic & permaculture
Zero food waste initiatives
And it is being developed worldwide
I will open the windows to the world, and show you the best, so that YOU can also benefit from my trip!
The Food Trotter
The Food Respect TOur
What is the concrete impact of your donation?
My main objectives are not only to be actively involved in the different initiatives met, form farm to fork, but also to share bottlenecks and opportunities.
The project can be followed online, and will end with the publishing of a book.
Examples of concrete actions
I will travel without any plane!
Different transportation means will be used: train (namely the transsiberian), bus, cargo ship, car sharing, biking, walking, sailing, etc.
Moreover, one of the project's sponsor will offset my carbon footprint.
In Asia, I will meet cooperatives working with Ethiquable using agroecology
In Australia, I will work in organic farms (WWOOFing) and at the Permaculture Research Institute
In North America, I will be involved in urban farming and will meet experts related to aquapony (integrated aquaculture associated with vegetable production)
In the Netherlands, I will collect unsold food to be recovered in restaurants to limit food waste
A great web-series
No money... no audiovisual equipment! No audiovisual equipment... no blog & videos! No blog & videos... no voice to the changemakers met! This technology will guarantee a web-series of good quality that will unveil 100% of my adventure.
A blog maintained during 1,000 days
This requires that I stay healthy during that period of time! Your donation will also help finance my insurance during 3 years.
And in numbers?
The 7,400 EUR of the campaign will be used to finance my audiovisual equipment (4,900 EUR) and my health insurance (2,500 EUR). This represents 11% of the total budget for the project.
And as I have nothing to hide, here is my detailed budget:
The Food Respect Tour is an adventure that invites to rethink our relationship with food. It is also a human adventure, and it is thanks to YOU that this experience will come to YOUR screens!
