#FOODTALKS: FOOD TO THE RESCUE? HOW CAN FOOD HELP US ADDRESS CLIMATE EMERGENCY AND INJUSTICE?

Our #FoodTalks series is now in its seventh year. This year’s overarching theme is ‘Food, climate, everyone’.

In our last online event, we explored how we can use food as a way of uniting us to overcome injustices, including the climate crisis. Industrial food systems are at the heart of societal divisions and too often store up problems for the long-term.

Weren’t able to make the live event? Never mind, watch the full recording above where our expert speakers consider how food can help us address climate emergency and injustice. What practical actions can we take – as individuals, in the organisations we’re involved in, and as part of a broader movement for fair food systems and a just world?

Our speakers included:

  • Raj Patel, film-maker (writer and co-director of ‘The Ants & The Grasshopper’), academic and author or co-author of books including Stuffed and Starved: Markets, Power and the Hidden Battle for the World’s Food System and A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the Planet (and described as “the rock star of social justice writing”);

  • Harriet Lamb, CEO of Ashden, climate solutions in action, plus co-author of ‘From Anger to Action’ (which tells the stories of the citizens’ movements tackling the biggest global challenges of our times); former Chief Executive of the Fairtrade Foundation.

  • Emily Bohobo N’Dombaxe Dola, Storytelling Director, Youth4Nature, with a particular focus on policy and advocacy issues around livelihoods and food systems, adaptation and resilience, and intersectionality and just transition.
