EPISODE 4: International Climate & Food SPECIAL EPISODE
In our final episode of season 2, we are looking at the international food system as a whole, and how we need to address this holistically for us to slow down, and adapt to climate change. With special guest, Mike Berners-Lee (author of 'How Bad Are Bananas?'), and stories from Food Tank in the USA and the Mijikenda Community in Kenya, we look at taking a whole food system approach, and the importance of collaboration. Pablo Thorne from Nourish Scotland and Keith Masson from the Highland Council then help us to contextualise all of this, with regards to Scotland's climate commitments at COP26 in Glasgow this November.
