The pandemic did not start, but merely accelerated a process of fracturing between people and communities. The crises we were facing before Covid-19 have been further amplified, with inequality rising along with global temperatures.
What response is necessary to secure a better future for humanity and the planet? Regeneration.
Regenerating doesn’t mean rebuilding, but reviving, from trees regrowing lost branches to the regeneration of impoverished soils and the rebirth of mountain communities, the restoration of fresh and saltwater ecosystems and the rethinking of the relationship between cities and the countryside.
Regeneration is an invitation to all of us, after the long pandemic, to look at the world with fresh eyes and a new enthusaism. Food must be at the heart of this regeneration, and act as a bridge to peace.
