Rethinking food: Could the pandemic change the way we eat, live and restore the Earth?
Human health and livelihoods depend on planetary health. So, how can we feed a growing global population without eating the planet? The 2020 theme of the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is “Food and Livelihoods.” Today, food systems are one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, a main driver of deforestation and the greatest threat to biodiversity. We need to transform the way we produce food and, as the COVID-19 pandemic is showing, we need to start now.
With global health pandemics and climate change creating a world of unknowns, we still have the power to plan for the future of food and livelihoods –a future with long-term planetary health and human well-being at the fore. Get an inside look at the latest sustainable food innovations. See how the world’s leading organizations use landscapes to solve today’s most pressing challenges.
