Did you know that 13% of global carbon emissions come from the agriculture industry, second only to all transportation?
Food affects each of our lives. It is a global issue in which all people are stakeholders. We all need to eat, and food production is the largest provider of jobs worldwide with over 1.3 billion people employed (GIS Geography).
Recent research reports that there are maybe 10 more seasons of “regular” agricultural practices before our food systems give-out and won’t work any longer. That’s just 10 years to transform the largest industry in the world.
We’re already seeing massive changes in how food systems look. For example, wine grapes are growing in Canada in regions that were too cold for them ten years ago, and growers in Australia and California are reporting losses of entire crops due to warming weather (BBC). And, agriculture is changing due to changing water stresses and reduced crop production.
What are the solutions, ideas, and changes we can look to for substantive change toward sustainable food – and even regenerative agriculture? And, how do we transform our food systems to be more equitable for all?
Sustainable food demands more of businesses, farmers, and consumers alike. Join us to hear what the most innovative organizations are doing to impact global food production practices as well as ways we can all consume more sustainability. This interactive conversation will include information about how food production has shifted and is changing following the COVID-19 pandemic.
All Be Social Change panels include a short networking opportunity at the beginning of the event in order to strengthen the inspiration, connections, and collaborations among people who are leading change.
