‘Food Matters’, Kirsten Larsen at Melbourne Social Forum Hot-House Festival
Kirsten highlights that to avoid irreversible climate change we need to fundamentally and immediately transform what and how we eat.
Food production accounts more greenhouse emissions than direct electricity use in our houses, and accounts for most of our water use too. Food prices are going up causing food security problems and the warming climate combined with less rainfall will pose new barriers to food production.
So what can or should we do? Do we understand the problem? Do we understand the solutions and how important are the actions individuals and communities are taking now?
