“With the Covid pandemic, Gaia has presented us with valuable, life-saving lessons. The question is: will we have the wisdom and the political will to heed these lessons?
“And will we apply them to the climate emergency? Will we shift from undifferentiated extractive growth to regenerative qualitative growth? Will we replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources for all our energy needs? Will we stop excessive mass tourism and instead revitalize local communities? Will we replace our centralized energy-intensive system of industrial agriculture with organic, community-oriented, regenerative farming?”
The Austrian physicist, economist and writer Fritjof Capra inaugurates our Food Talks with a reflection on Covid-19 and the social and economic emergency we’re living through, demonstrating how the various dimensions and aspects of the problem are all intimately connected.
The Food Talks are new and freely accessible format of Terra Madre Salone del Gusto: ten minutes for our guests to explore their thoughts on the world we live in, and the future we want for it. The full Food Talk with Fritijof Capra will be released on October 9.
