Our diet and food sources remain one of the most personal areas of our lives that will be greatly affected by climate change. With erratic weather patterns impacting a growing number of agricultural land, farmers and communities across the US and the world are faced with determining how to adapt and create a resilient food supply chain. Philip Clayton and Grace Okafor sit and talk with Mike Hoffmann, lead author of the book Our Changing Menu: Climate Change and the Foods We Love and Need, to discuss the book and climate smart farming solutions. Their discussion delves into how behavior change through diets can engage individuals and communities in climate change advocacy by way of food.
We bring you today’s episode in partnership with Reboot the Future, a British charity committed to the principles of the Golden Rule — treat others and the planet as you would wish to be treated. The focus of this episode, along with others in this series, is to explore the visions for a Life Economy which American author, John Perkins, describes as a framework that maximizes long-term benefits for all life and the environment.
Each episode of this podcast will explore core values that support a Life Economy with leaders across a range of areas in business and the private sector and how they can activate collective corporate or global leadership action.
