    Teachers introduce the topic of the lesson. "What we consume, how, and how much, has consequences for humans, animals, and the environment. Great challenges lie ahead as we are facing population growth and climate change and reduced availability of fossil fuels. It is often argued that key to meeting those challenges is changing consumption patterns among individual as well as institutions, for instance through reducing meat consumption, switching to organic or fair trade products, boycotting or 'buycotting' certain products, or consuming less overall."[https://www.wageningenacademic.com/doi/book/10.3920/978-90-8686-784-4]
