What is a Sustainable Food System? It provides healthy and nutritious food for people and creates sustainable ecological ecosystems, financial security for businesses and prosperous rural communities. Sustainable food systems start with the development of sustainable agricultural practices, the development of more sustainable food distribution systems, and the reduction of food waste throughout the system. Sustainable food systems are central to the Sustainable Development Goals.
What is Carbon Literacy? The Carbon Literacy Project describes it as ‘An awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.’ We would add that being Carbon Literate is now an essential part of our jobs and roles as it helps us all to communicate using the same language, reduce miscommunication and enact the change the planet so desperately needs.
