Exhibition at the Virtual Global Experience Area

A world of hunger and excess: yet food can be the key to health and a better society


What did you eat today? Do you have balanced meals every day? Do you often leave food on your plate?

While some 800 million people in the world suffer from malnutrition, overeating and excessive intake of nutrition have also become social issues. Just as there is a huge gap between the rich and poor nations of the world, there are those who cannot afford to buy food and countries where nutrition is lacking, even though plenty of food is being produced - enough to feed everyone across the globe. Meanwhile, in some countries, large amounts of food are being thrown out on a daily basis. In modern society, obesity has become a serious problem in developed and developing countries alike. The food and nutrition state that the world is now facing is indeed unbalanced.

This exhibition introduces global conditions and issues through food and nutrition, things we cannot live without. Let's think about measures for a sustainable society that we can all take part in.
