Communicating the Global Food System [Video]

How to feed the world ? from Denis van Waerebeke on Vimeo.

This video deals with two issues that have occupied the folks here at the Institute lately: food systems and education.  I think it’s worth a quick watch because, on the one hand, the video effectively covers a number of complex processes that underpin the uneven nature of the global food system.  The director, Denis van Waerebeke, touches on land tenure, commodity markets, and international food aid all while sticking to a narrative which helps to keep things comprehensible.  On the other hand, I like this video simply for the way that it communicates information.  As Fast Company explains, the short animation was created for a science show for 12 year-old children in Paris.  Now, I’m not convinced that this would make sense to a classroom of elementary students, but I would definitely feel comfortable showing it to high-schoolers and I bet that the graphics would hold the attention of both groups!
