The world simply does not have enough land to farm sufficient meat for everyone let alone produce enough food and to allow sufficient wild spaces for the world to ‘recover its breath’. In the two challenges lie a wealth of possibilities, heart-aches, successes and inspiration as we look at what it means and try to deploy emerging strategies.
The question is not so much ‘should we be doing this?’ as ‘how do we do it and make it attractive?’
This series is intended to be a serious, though accessible, attempt to use popular televisual programming to inspire individuals and communities to embrace those things that, if everyone adopted them, would change the world for the better, forever!
It will follow the excitement of discovery, the joy of success, the disappointment of failure, the scepticism of some and the cynicism of others as well as the cultural grieving necessary to make important life-style changes.
It is not a white-wash or propaganda – it is intended as a genuine attempt to engage.
Þ It’s not Either/Or—it’s Both/And
What should we do as individuals and how should we influence our community to play our part in managing Climate Change?
NB : Not just – how do we reduce our carbon footprint? Or How do I live a more sustainable lifestyle? We need to do both and more….
It starts with some very simple steps :
Most important of all :
¨ From tomorrow – eat far more locally produced, plant based food and ideally, remove farmed meat and fish from your diet entirely.
Then : Organise your life to waste less, be efficient in energy use, create energy locally, and take responsibility for your locality.
