Access to nutritious food is fundamental to our survival. Yet, according to the United Nations Committee on World Food Security, the combination of “a changing climate, growing global population, rising food prices, and environmental stressors will have significant, yet uncertain, impacts on global food supply in the coming years.” Our ability to navigate these challenges and create more resilient, equitable, and just food systems plays a critical role in our future.
From the design and environmental impact of our food production and consumption patterns to struggles for food security, our individual and collective relationship to food is complex and constantly evolving. As technologies continue to advance and we face increasing pressures on our environment, what will the future of food and our food systems be like? How does the implementation of certain agricultural practices help alleviate the ever-growing pressures on the environment? What influence does our personal relationship with food have on our interactions with others?
Food Fight! invites you to explore the social, environmental, political, and economic relationships humans have with food, and uncover the complex dynamics that shape our food systems.
