We have a problem

View descriptionShare

The food we eat connects us to the wider world; to global history, cultures and traditions. But the practises we’ve ended up with today mean that our systems are failing and many of our favourite foods and farming practises are heading towards extinction.

 In this first episode, Advolly Richmond explores the history of our relationship with food and how it’s led us to harmful modern-day production practices. She meets up with actor Ajay Chhabra and Kew’s Director of Science Professor Alexandre Antonelli for a frank discussion in the Palm House.

 Author and food journalist Dan Saladino and Dr Caroline Cornish delve into the past and look at how contemporary consumption is starving our planet and contributing to global imbalances as well as environment-wrecking levels of waste and emissions.

 Sounds worrying? That’s just the beginning of your journey into the future of food, because we’re about to meet the scientists, artists, thinkers and chefs who are working to make sure that our grandchildren can enjoy healthy, sustainable diets that are better for people and the environment.

The future is in all of our hands. Will you join us?
