In the name of feeding the world our fields have been transformed into endless monocultures, while animals are packed in squalid conditions for the production of meat, and floating factories empty our oceans of fish. In the name of feeding the world we are exhausting its resources at an ever faster pace. It’s time to take care of nature and restore what we’ve damaged. It’s time for regeneration.
We need to recognize all the different ways we harm our planet and understand how those promises to feed the world are built on policies which put the food security of millions at risk.
So what are the good practices we can use to manage the land, the water, and coexist with all the other living beings on this planet? We share some concrete examples and show how vital regeneration is for the future of our food.
