As Ron Finley, the Gangsta Gardener, says “planting a carrot can be an act of resistance”. We have the power to drive change. Why? Because the will is there. That will is feeding off the interplay between food and love. Danielle Gould, CEO Food+Tech Connect, says we need to “lead with love”. She’s right and we can apply that thought directly to our food. So we need to “nourish with love”. To nourish with love is to care passionately about the food we eat, the food we share and how that food is produced: with love for Mother Earth. We can all nourish with love.
We at SustainAbility are redoubling our efforts. We will apply our skills, experience, connections and passion in several areas: driving cross-sector learning – for example between pharma with food, and between emerging technologies and food. We will focus on value chains in the restaurant sector. We also believe that one of the most pressing needs is to improve First 1,000 Days nutrition and are committed to doing so through dialogue and trust building. We will share and collaborate wherever we can, so we look forward to your feedback on this issue.
