Positive Tipping Points in Practice: Food Systems

A Global Systems Institute seminar

What are the positive tipping points for food systems in the climate crisis? How can we create and trigger them?

How we grow, process, distribute and consume food has a vast impact on the health of both people and the planet. Our food and land use systems create 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Roughly a third of all the food we produce is wasted, while an estimated 2 billion people worldwide are either malnourished, suffering from some form of hunger and/or overweight.

The Food and Land Use Coalition is a community of organisations and individuals committed to the urgent need to transform the way we produce and consume food and use our land for people, nature and climate. Working with the University of Exeter, they have explored the critical actions that could tip us into a better food system.

So how could food systems be different? What can be learned from what has or hasn’t worked? How can we better understand the potential for the way we use food and land to trigger new positive impacts?

Join this free workshop to find out, and hear the latest research into Positive Tipping Points, from world-leading experts. We will collectively practice using the Positive Tipping Points framework – creating the right conditions for change, finding reinforcing feedback loops, and triggering a shift into a new system – before identifying key next steps for food systems, from global initiatives to local projects.
