How food can save the planet. Carolyn Steel, a leading thinker on food and cities, delves into a more sustainable way of eating and living that calls for change.
We live in a world shaped by food, a Sitopia (sitos – food, topos – place). Food, and how we search for and consume it, has defined our human journey, shaped our bodies and homes, our politics and trade, and our climate. But if we forget its value, we fall into a way of life that threatens the planet and all of us. What if there were a more sustainable way of eating and living? This is the question asked by Carolyn Steel, a leading thinker on food and cities. With insights from various areas and stories from farmers, designers and economists who are rebuilding our relationship with food, Sitopia is a thought-provoking vision that calls for change.
