In late 2015 National Society of Conservationists – Friends of the Earth Hungary in cooperation with HAND Association had organised a course by the name of “Do We Die of Starvation or Do We Become Obese?” The following themes were adressed along the event beside others: the global monetary system, food security, agrofuel, genetically modified crops, land grabbing.

The first lecture was given by ecologist Iván Gyulai who among others is interested in how unsustainable mechanisms are coded in our monetary system’s basic structure and thus is headed for collapse. By listening to his lecture one can fully grasp the subject just in 47 minutes. The lecture is only available in Hungarian.
