28.07.2018 : Blended Learning

Having been heavily involved in the development of tracing/tracking and good agricultural practice in the middle of the 90ies by EHI, Orgainvent and Globalgap Prof. Hallier's focus today is the transfer of applied sciences into the academic sector : one of its tools is www.european-retail-academy.org/TUN.

"We need at the university-level worldwide the penetration of basic knowledge about major food-standards and standard-setters" Hallier claimed at the First International Silk Road Mayors Conference in Astana/Kazakhstan. "The revitalized Silk Road Network should be an innovation-driver for Agro-Hubs combining storage, processing, packing,logistics creating new jobs in that area as well as helping to improve food-security. Part of the teaching should be organized by blended learning to increase the learning potential!".
 



20.07.2018 : Ecology and Ethics

Speaking about the new ecological challenges due to the warming of the globe and the ethical distribution of the wealth of nations Prof.Dr.Hallier points to the fact that everything starts with ideas/dreams of individual people and then depends on their abilities to convince by leadership.

Planting trees in Africa had been the vision of Kenya's Nobel Laureate Wangari Mata Maathai as well as to strengthen the role of women via this environmental issue. In Japan - and later even in other Asian countries - Takuya Okada , chairman of the AEON-Group, planted cherry-trees ("Sakura") for harmony and eternity.

10.07.2018 : Green Belt Standards

According to the credo of Prof.Dr.B.Hallier standards within the food-chain from farm to fork can decrease food losses/waste upto 30 percent ! Therefore since autumn 2017 he is pushing the Thematic University Network Food ( Link) - also via the Plekhanov University Moscow/Russia or in Astana/Kazakhstan by the Silk Road Mayors Green Belt Initiative ( see also : www.european-retail-academy.org/GGU ).

A Chinese delegation guided by David Zhang from Beijing (shown at he photo) visited Prof.Hallier in Roesrath/Germany to see how he even personally is using geothermic and photo voltaic at his private home, collecting the rain-water of the roof of his house in a pond in the garden and to be cultural active on the local level to attract by green-lifestyle artist to live and work in his community (Link Nature).
 



30.06.2018 : Food Security

In 2015 Prof.Dr.B.Hallier published his EU-research "FoodWasteManagement" ( e-book ) and became EXPO-Ambassador for Saving Food for the Milano-exhibition (Ambassador). In 2017 he supported the First African Congress about Food Losses at the University of Nairobi/Kenya.

The painter and art-therapist Marie-Christin Hallier exhibited in Nairobi together with the International Club of Artists (IKV) and the African HAWA-Group to organize public awareness for the topic of Food Waste /Losses for that Congress ( Vernissage). Now in 2018 the German section of IKV repeated its (enlarged) part at the Gallery of the Mayor's House in the German city of Menden (see pic.). "Don't forget Africa" was M.-C. Hallier's wish for that event - reminding her workshop with underpriveledged children in the slum Shangilia/Nairobi ( Shangilia). Important for Food Security are global standards according to Prof.Hallier ; therefore applied sciences in this field are promoted via www.european-retail-academy.org/TUN .
 



25.06.2018 : Culture and History

Prof.Dr.B.Hallier published in 1999 his German edition of "Culture and History of Trade" - documenting by art 5000 years of commerce; followed later by a Russian and a Korean edition. At the First International Silk Road Mayors Conference being organised in Astana he proudly handed over one copy to Korea's Nobel Laureate Prof.Dr.Raekwon Chung.


"History proves that trade routes are not just technical tools for the transport of products" Prof.Hallier stated "but they are drivers for innovation and cultural cross-border exchanges!" In his lecture dedicated to the hopes and fears about a revitalised Silk Road he demanded a mix of learnings from David Ricardo and Charles Darwin to implement a Social Market Economy based on a optimum between Economy, Ecology and Ethics (more: PDF).
