It’s no secret: food manufacturers see kids as golden geese. Establish brand recognition during the preschool years, and you’ve got yourself a customer for life! Of course, you’ve also got a nation filled with children struggling with obesity, diabetes, and other lifelong health risks… but hey, that’s for their parents to worry about! Parent, author, and educator Anna Lappe calls food companies out — and calls all of us to action — in a TEDx talk published earlier this month.
A skyrocketing demand for food means that agriculture has become the largest driver of climate change, biodiversity loss and environmental destruction. At TEDxTC Jonathan Foley shows why we desperately need to begin “terraculture” — farming for the whole planet.
