    Changeons de menu - SOS Faim

       

    Notre alimentation ne reste pas sans conséquences pour les populations du Sud ni pour l’environnement. On estime qu’environ un quart de l’empreinte écologique d’un Luxembourgeois est due à ses habitudes alimentaires.

    L’industrialisation et la mondialisation ont contribué à fortement changer nos habitudes alimentaires. La production alimentaire actuelle est totalement dépendante d’engrais chimiques, de pesticides et d’énergies fossiles, à quoi s’ajoute le transport sur des milliers de kms avant leur consommation, qui aggrave encore l’empreinte carbone des aliments.

    La campagne de mobilisation citoyenne de SOS Faim « Changeons de menu ! » (2015-2017) vise à sensibiliser différents publics luxembourgeois (lycées, restaurants d’entreprise, médias, décideurs politiques, etc.) à une alimentation durable. 

    Dans ce sens, SOS Faim invite les consommateurs à prendre conscience des impacts de leurs habitudes alimentaires en calculant leur empreinte alimentaire sur le site de la campagne www.changeonsdemenu.lu ou lors de différents évènements. Par ailleurs, elle appuie toutes les initiatives visant à « changer de menu », en proposant concrètement des repas privilégiant la consommation locale, biologique et équitable.

    Les entreprises peuvent participer à cette initiative en organisant avec SOS Faim un tel repas dans leur restaurant d'entreprise et encourager ainsi une consommation durable et responsable, tant au niveau collectif qu'individuel.

    LeasePlan walks for ELA

    Since their first encounter during the Speed Meeting of the 1st of July 2014 at the Cercle Cité, Lease Plan has renewed its commitment with ELA (European Leukodystrophies Association) for the second consecutive year.

    As part of the operation called “Wear your trainers in the company”, employees equipped with pedometers were mobilized to count their steps for the association and to collect funds which will help financing medical research and the support of families concerned with leukodystrophies. 

    At the end of the activity, employees have walked collectively the equivalent of 413 700 steps in one day, which is more than 7500 steps per person on average. The result: a donation of 1500 € was presented to Jean-Paul Friedrich, president of ELA Luxembourg, the 15 September.
