To create a sustainable future, one first has to create a sustainable mindset. And as with many technical and environmental efforts to reduce our consumption of goods and energy, a solution is only efficient when followed by a subsequent change of mentality amongst the users. The idea is here to directly change the mentality amongst the users by forcing an attack on their alienation from nature. This is achieved by making them all first-hand direct users of the actual nature on DTU campus, switching over to planting a purely edible greenery selection and basically transforming DTU into an edible campus.
