Declining Insect Populations and Agriculture

One of the reasons why efficient agriculture is so popular is that it is more land-efficient and costeffective compared to sustainable agriculture. However, monocultures and pesticide use have multiple consequences, including declining insect populations and biodiversity loss. However, sustainable agriculture also harbours problems. Food is becoming more expensive and not everyone can afford it.

Food is a central basis for the survival of mankind. But how do we ensure that everyone is taken care of without causing too much damage to the environment? How can we deal with these different conflicting goals? What approaches to problem solving are conceivable?

The pupils gain knowledge on the topic and engage with various positions and possible approaches to problem solving. The pupils‘ feelings and values play a central role here.
