What SAM Knows

Climate FOOD – if you eat, you are involved

We are surrounded by the results of destructive decisions made by a self-interested few. We stand on the brink of a global outcome that threatens not only our very basic requirements but our very ability to survive! Not only is Food Security topical, the quality of the food being produced is also under scrutiny. Are we eating ourselves into starvation?

Until now, it has been about government and big multi-national players following systems, processes and structures of their making, coupled with a massive loss of trust in the media. However, a subtle shift in power and information accessibility has flipped the models for participation, poised for the revival of a counter force – the upswell of ideas, techniques, unity and elegance.

We’re now seeing an emerging requirement for inspirational, creative thinking, consultative styles and effective partnering to address these issues, especially tackling the food question, at both the grass roots level and at the big end of town.

Bottom line is, if we keep doing what we’ve always done, we’ll continue to get what we’ve always got… and we want that to STOP!

These trend indicators all point to a new way of exploring feeding the nations of the world. Climate FOOD!
