we are looking for research assistants for a project;
Food consumption in Europe in 2030: Trends, Possibilities and Aspirations.

Would you like to conduct research on how food consumption will change by 2030 and examine what the most important changes will be? This project is trying to explore questions like; will meat consumption continue to reduce among generation Z, or will community values surpass food culture in Europe. The fundamental goal of this project is to develop and gain understanding of what food culture will be in 2030 from the perspective of the uprising generation.
Information will be collected from a diverse range of platforms such as social media posts, studies and academic material. Other media will also be used such as blogs, YouTube videos and podcasts.
