At the International Green Week in Berlin, Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks calls for a rethinking of agriculture and consumer behavior. At the booth of the Federal Ministry of the Environment (BMUB) , activities and events around rural infrastructure, sustainability and protection of nature and species were offered during the Green Week until January 29th.

Minister Barbara Hendricks says: "Intensive animal husbandry does not have a future in its present form, but sustainable agriculture, which takes biodiversity, climate protection and human health into account, is a viable future, and I therefore advocate the conversion of subsidies to an agriculture that is managed in an environmentally sound and sustainable way. Public funding is only available for public purposes, that means for me: preserving the landscape, soils and water, biodiversity , environment and climate "

At the stand of the Federal Ministry of the Environment, Hendricks publicly discussed the necessity of sustainable agriculture with Hubert Weiger (chairman of the environment association BUND) and Felix Prinz zu Löwenstein (chairman of the executive committee for organic food BÖLW).
