Pitch event: The Climate Day

Saturday, January 28, 2023

The Culinary Institute By Vejle Erhverv actively participated in Vejle Municipality’s Climate Day, a significant event focused on fostering sustainable climate-related transitions and addressing pressing environmental concerns. In this context, the Culinary Institute initiated a compelling project known as “The Fjord on the Table,” with the primary objective of shedding light on the invasive species in Vejle Fjord that are detrimental to its ecosystem.

A highlight of this initiative was the creation and presentation of a delectable soup crafted from the crabs found in Vejle Fjord. This culinary creation served as a powerful tool to raise awareness among the local residents of Vejle who attended the event. Those in attendance were not only treated to a delicious meal but also educated about the environmental challenges posed by these invasive crabs.

As a result of their participation in this event, the residents of Vejle became more acutely aware of the issues plaguing their beloved fjord. They were not mere spectators; they were encouraged to actively engage in the solution. The message was clear: by catching these invasive crabs, the residents could make a positive contribution to the restoration and enhancement of Vejle Fjord’s delicate ecosystem.

The Culinary Institute’s involvement in Vejle Municipality’s Climate Day was not just about gastronomy; it was about promoting environmental consciousness and fostering a sense of responsibility among the community. This event showcased the power of culinary creativity as a means of advocating for sustainable practices and making a meaningful impact on the environment.
