6 THOUGHT PROVOKING RESOURCES ON THE FUTURE OF FOOD

As Fairtrade Fortnight 2023 draws to a close, contemplating a future without our favourite foods has been at the forefront of our minds.

Aside from the importance of supporting producers, gatherers and, workers in tackling the effects of climate change by guaranteeing a fair wage, we've also been thinking more widely about living sustainably and making fairer choices. 

Here are 6 thought-provoking resources to help you dig deeper, think bigger and feel inspired:   

1. BOOK: Braiding Sweetgrass, by Robin Wall Kimmerer – a poetic masterpiece, combining the often contradictory worlds of indigenous knowledge and western science. It's a beautiful new way to look at the world.

2. RESEARCH: The Big Food Redesign, Ellen Macarthy Foundation – an interesting exploration into food design built on regenerative production, low-impact ingredients, waste elimination and highly nutritional. Symbiotic cheese or climate crunch cereal anyone?!

3. SHORTS: Farmers, Fairtrade International –  Fairtrade Fortnight is all about making the future for farmers fairer (that's a lot of ‘F’s!) But who are these farmers? These lovely snapshots put faces to some of the farmers that feed us  

4. PODCAST:  The Big Interviews with George Monbiot, Food Matters Live-  a radical rethinking of the global farming system, how to bring back soil health and growing tasty lab-created meat. There’s some serious passion for dirt here. 

5. FILM: Let Me Come To Your Wounds, Heal Myself, Manush John - bringing art and agriculture together, this lyrical video illustrates the commitment of local farmers who work 'like earthworms, nurturing, preserving and resisting’. Sit back with a cup of tea and let art and agriculture come together.

6. ARTICLE: Indigenous Knowledge is key to sustainable food systems, Nature – a pretty convincing argument on placing more value on ‘knowledge holders and guardians of biodiversity’ to rebuild our broken food system, peppered with historical events, case studies and collaborative visions.
