Description

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. This talk explains what is wrong with the food system and how the consequences of continuing with ‘business as usual’ impact on cities; how action at a city level can influence positive change, taking Bristol as an example; and how each one of us has a crucial role to play. Joy Carey works as an independent Sustainable Food Systems consultant. She is author of ‘Who Feeds Bristol? Towards a resilient food plan’ (2011): a baseline report that has informed the development of the Bristol Good Food Plan. She has also co-produced a 35 min documentary film, ‘Local Food Roots’ (2013), about the emergence, achievements and challenges of the UK local food movement since 1990. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
