As part of the STErn project, led by Ecologic Institute, an online-workshop on the socio-ecological transformation of the food system in Germany with a focus on the protein transition took place on 30 November 2021 together with 35 experts. The aim of the event was to discuss possible indicators that can help to politically anchor and monitor the necessary change in dietary patterns towards more plant-based and less animal-based proteins.

The workshop was based on an input paper that was presented by the main author Stephanie Wunder:

This was followed by two short impulses commenting on the input paper by Dr Ulrike Eberle (corsus) and Dr Peter von Philipsborn (LMU Munich), first from an environmental perspective, then from a health perspective:

The participants discussed in plenary as well as in small groups the term and the relevance of the "protein transition" as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the presented indicator options (food-group-index and protein-source-indicator) regarding their feasibility and practicability.

A documentation of the event is available for download. Further information on the project and past and upcoming events can be found on the STErn project website.
