How is the Covid-19 pandemic changing our relationship with food?

A questionnaire on our changing behaviour and attitudes to food during the Covid-19 pandemic has been launched by research institutions and other organisations including ECOLISE.

There is much anecdotal evidence that food is becoming more central to many people’s lives during the crisis. The purpose of this survey is to provide strong scientific evidence in order to deliver robust lessons and advice to public authorities, market players, civil society and other relevant stakeholders, as well as to the research community. Some of the questions the survey aims to answer include:

  • what are the actual changes taking place?
  • are they likely to persist once the pandemic’s effects have mitigated?
  • what could be the longer-terms consequences for efforts to create much more sustainable and locally-focused food systems?

It can be answered in multiple languages by everyone regardless of where you are in the world. Please visit: to find the best language for you as well as more information.

The Danish Technological Institute, the Copenhagen Business School, the INSIGHT Center in Ireland, the French Transition Town network, the Italian Agro-Ecological Partnership and the European Food Information Council are among the researchers and organisations involved.




We are working on a new website for ECOLISE.
