We can produce more with less

Five C’s to change the world
Almost all of our major global challenges are linked to food; what we eat, how it is produced, and all that is wasted. We are beginning to grasp the magnitude and complexity of our broken food system, but not even close to fixing it.

But no matter how ‘super wicked’ our problems seem, there are some exciting entry points for action. EAT has defined five; commissions, cities, children, chefs and cash.
