The Global Food Crisis

We developed this short video as a way of communicating an important message in a simple way – our food system is broken. We need to fix it. Our central issue today is not the global financial crisis but whether we can produce enough food for civilisation to survive when faced with a rising population, water scarcity, loss of farmland, heavy peak oil and gas reliance, collapse of fisheries and inexcusable food waste. Take a few minutes, watch this clip and forward it on to your mates. It’s a message every one of us needs to hear, and see.
