  • The Case for Fish Farming – Mike Velings

    TED

    We’re headed towards a global food crisis: Nearly 3 billion people depend on the ocean for food, and at our current rate we already take more fish from the ocean than it can naturally replace. In this fact-packed, eye-opening talk, entrepreneur and conservationist Mike Velings proposes a solution: Aquaculture, or fish farming. “We must start using the ocean as farmers instead of hunters,” he says, echoing Jacques Cousteau. “The day will come where people will demand farmed fish on their plates that’s farmed well and farmed healthy and refuse anything … Read More

  • Transforming us into a society of food producers – Dr. Chandra Krintz

    TEDxFargo

    Dr. Chandra Krintz discusses how we might use advances in technology that have transformed us into a society of consumers, to transform us into a society of producers (food producers that is). In particular, she suggests using the same techniques that Amazon, Google, and Facebook use to target advertising, marketing, and sales of products to us (i.e. data aggregation, analysis, and prediction), to make farmers and ranchers more productive in order to feed the planet as our population grows.

  • Let’s reconnect to the food we buy and eat – Fiona Jongejans

    TEDxMaastricht

    While 4.6 billion euros worth of food is thrown away in the Netherlands every year, 1.4 million people in that country live below the poverty line and cannot afford a sufficiently healthy diet. Fiona Jongejans has set herself the goal of bridging the gap between food waste and food poverty. She argues that we must shorten the distance between producer and consumer in order to give back value to our food and by doing so, to enhance the sustainability of our food chain. The real cure to the problem of … Read More

  • Is There A Bias In Our Food Media? – Erin Ireland

    TEDxSFU

    Media has the power to influence our food choices, and food media has become big business with a lot of power. Read More

  • The Food You Eat – James Miner

    TEDxBeaconStreet

    How much do you know about the food you eat? Have you ever wondered how far it travels to get to you, or how much water was consumed to produce it? The more you know, the more you’ll be interested in the future of food and its increasingly important role in the design of our cities. Read More

  • Growing food, growing community: the example of the Hawley Hamlet – Tim Rinne

    TEDxLincoln

    Since 2010, Tim and his wife have gone from a measly little tomato patch to six tenths of an acre (the equivalent of roughly 65 yards of a football field). They have planted over 50 fruit and nut trees and two dozen berry beds, set up two chicken coops and two beehives, and now have 20 neighbors actively participating in what they call their hamlet. They are growing food in the “Hawley Hamlet.” But equally important, they’re growing community. And that’s a good thing. Because given the risks climate change … Read More

  • The four fish we’re overeating — and what to eat instead – Paul Greenberg

    TED

    The way we fish for popular seafood such as salmon, tuna and shrimp is threatening to ruin our oceans. Paul Greenberg explores the sheer size and irrationality of the seafood economy, and suggests a few specific ways we can change it, to benefit both the natural world and the people who depend on fishing for their livelihoods. Read More

  • How Should the Food System Change? – Lance Price

    Change Food

    From my perspective as a microbiologist, as a public health person, one of the main things you can do to change the food system is to quit giving industrial animals antibiotics to make them grow faster, to prevent diseases that are occurring because of the way that we’re raising them. Raise animals in a way that makes them healthy so they don’t need antibiotics. Because what happens is using those antibiotics creates superbugs that can then spread to people. Read More

  • How Should the Food System Change? – Kendra Kimbirauskas

    Change Food

    We need to get animals out of confinement buildings. I feel like the fact that we have animals in factory farms has basically been the nexus for all that is wrong with our food system. Read More
