Farmer and the Gene in Mondiaal Centrum Haarlem
|

(information in dutch)
Woensdag 4 juni 2008 vindt de laatste Café Globaal plaats voor de zomervakantie.  Om vol ideeën en inspiratie de zomer in te gaan nodigen we extra veel gasten uit. De avond wordt afgesloten met de 24 minuten durende film ‘Gen zoekt boer’. Met de verwachtingen en twijfels van boeren als vertrekpunt, onderzoekt de documentaire verschillende aspecten van gentechnologie in de landbouw zoals het samengaan van gemanipuleerde, biologische en gangbare gewassen en de milieuveiligheid en gezondheidsrisico's van GGO's. Kunnen de verschillende benaderingen van voedselproductie vredig naast elkaar bestaan of zijn ze onverenigbaar in een klein land als Nederland?
