Here is a brief extract from Geoff Tansey’s website:

“Food is at the heart of the key challenge facing humanity – creating sustainable, healthy ways in which everyone can have sufficient sustenance, in diverse communities that peacefully cooperate with each other.

“Choices about how we feed ourselves this century are also choices about what kind of future we humans want, in the face of unprecedented challenges from climate change.”
