This video clip ‘Food Eco-Footprint’ explains how our food eco-footprint is the consequence of the food we eat, and how it is produced and the rate by which it is consumed, which also creates an interconnection between food consumption and climate change.
In its broadest sense an eco-footprint represents the amount of land and water it takes to provide the resources required to sustain a person’s consumption levels, and re-absorb the associated waste.
One of the major societal contributions to our eco-footprint is our production and consumption of food. An increased knowledge of these issues allows for a more informed decision making process, which has the possibility to help strengthen food security through the endorsement of both sustainable producer and consumer behavior.
This short film was created in collaboration between the European Parliament’s Audio Visual Services and STOA, the Science and Technology Options Assessment section of the newly formed European Parliament Research Services, with research assistance from the European Parliament’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).
This video clip was created on the occasion of the STOA event ‘How to feed the world in 2050?‘, held at the European Parliament in Brussels on 4 December 2013.

But I like pineapples ;(
I think what you posted was actually very reasonable.
But, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I am not saying your information isn’t solid, however suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention?
I mean What is your food eco-footprint? | European Parliamentary Research Service is a little boring.
You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write
article headlines to get people to click. You might add a video
or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve
written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
Appreciate it for discuss………. I’m hoping throughout foreseeable future it’s going to be really of great help for us……
I dont have one because I drive everywhere =P
