Münchner Klimaherbst Film Screening: AGROkalypse
Brazil's jungles are the stage of a human-induced tragedy. These unique ecosystems are being degraded and destroyed, day by day, by farmers of soya beans. In particular, it is foreign, big-industry organisations that are responsible for the daily over-exploitation of the forests and the driving-out of native people and animals. Up to 12 kg of Soya or grain is needed as animal feed to produce just 1 kg of meat. In order to supply the growing worlwide meat demands, more and more land is being consumed for growing food for livestock. AGROkalypse presents a multifaceted view on the rapid developments in soya production and its affects on our consumer behavior. The film also offers solutions that could allow an alternative future for the industry and forests.
