From the Ground Up
The global population is sustained by fragile food systems that are wreaking havoc with the environment and public health. Food systems contribute to and are significantly affected by climate change but they are also a crucial part of the solution. In this final episode of Spilling the Beans we spoke to Patrick Holden, Founding Director of the Sustainable Food Trust and Patty Fong, the Program Director for Climate and Health & Well-being at Global Alliance for the Future of Food about how and why we need to rethink food systems. Produced in partnership with Sustainable Foods Event.
