FEAST Project created the installation “School Lunches of the Future” as one of the RIHN’s annual Open House activities in the summer of 2019. It exhibits four different school lunch menus in four future scenarios based on the 2×2 matrix of dependency on food trade (globalization or localization?) and climate change (are we able to achieve the 1.5 degree Paris climate change goal or not?).
This installation project thus far received some attentions and there have been a magazine column article and two Asahi Shimbun articles. We have also published a blog article here. Please find more details from the links below.

We have upgraded this installment since last summer, hoping to make it available as various food and environment-related events. Unfortunately, however, we are yet to do so due to the current circumstances. We are currently digitalizing it so that people can have access anywhere anytime!
