Setting The Table for a Food Revolution
Listen now
Description
Welcome to the first episode in a brand new series on The Future of Food!   Today, this episode coincides with a very important international gathering, the first of its kind at the United Nations. Known as the UN Food Systems Summit, formally, it is also called The People’s Summit. During this ongoing series we will seek to unlock the many changes needed to enable each sector – government, corporations and citizens to ask themselves, “How can we contribute to a transformative movement for an inclusive, regenerative and circular society where access to nutritious food is a right we actually realize for every single person?” But before we eat, we need to set the table. We’re joined on this episode by:   Dr. David Nabarro Co-Director | Imperial College of London Institute of Global Health Innovation  Senior Advisor | Food Systems Summit Dialogues  Strategic Director | 4SD Switzerland  Special Envoy of WHO Director General for COVID19   Johan Rockström Director | Potsdam Institute of Climate Impact Research   Dr. Gunhild A Stordalen Founder & Executive Chair | EAT   These incredible guests help us explore in-depth the challenges and opportunities our current food system faces, and show us why getting food right might just be the key to unlocking our path to achieving our 2030 goals.   —   Christiana + Tom’s book ‘The Future We Choose’ is available now!
