GROUNDWORK WEBCAST SERIES - PART 3
This is the last of three programs on food and farming through a climate lens.
- Sally Miller, Fair Finance Fund
- Sunday Harrison, Green Thumbs Growing Kids
- Michelle Delaney, Thorncliffe Park Urban Farmers
- Lily Phan, National Farmers Union (farmer)
- Josephine Grey, EcoJust Food Network, OASIS
Food systems have a huge impact on climate and climate has a huge influence on food production. Agriculture and land-use release as much carbon emissions every year as global electricity production -- and far more than the transport sector. Through three sessions, we are bringing to light the importance of the land and food production as drivers of global warming--and what we can do about it!
Learn how agriculture and changes in our food system can be a climate solution. Research by Project Drawdown has demonstrated that by scaling up existing solutions, land-use can become a carbon sink rather than a source, while securing future food production, protecting natural systems and creating a more equitable world.
