Still from How To Feed The World? by Denis van Waerebeke
The world food system is extremely complex. Trying to comprehend how farmers in Africa are impacted by decision we make at the grocery store in the west - and the whims of commodities traders in Chicago - can hurt the brain.
Lucky for us French multimedia artist Denis van Waerebeke made a video to help us understand. The nine-minute video starts by stating that 1 in 7 humans is undernourished and how 96% of those going hungry live in the Global South. From there it becomes a story of Haves and Have-Nots, with succinct explanations of food dependence and simple solutions that the Haves can implement to help stop the hunger.
Check it out and give us your thoughts.
