Resilience is possible in a world in a state of climatic emergency. Regenerative agriculture can give us some clue.
It is now generally accepted that companies need new approaches to production and services in order to adapt to the climate emergency now facing the world. Recent developments in different sectors are helping mitigate the impact of production on the planet. In the farming industry in particular, these developments involve taking a new look at how land is cultivated and resuscitating the farming knowledge of generations of yore.
Are today’s food production methods sustainable? Do we have enough resources to feed the entire planet? Are we aware of the impact we have on the environment? Do we know where everything we eat comes from? Is generative farming a feasible alternative? Are the lessons learned from regenerative farming applicable to other sectors?
There’s undoubtedly lots we can do from our privileged position. Come along and raise your awareness, find out what alternatives are available and think about it all with us.
We’ll be screening The Biggest Little Farm, a documentary directed by John Chester, about how he and his wife Molly bought 200 hectares in California to try and build a farm where they could work the land in harmony with nature. A marvellous documentary about the highs and lows of the eight-year period until the farm came into its own in the midst of a California ravaged by fire.
We’ll reflect upon the challenge of feeding the population in a healthy and environmentally sustainable way without depleting the natural resources available.
Discussion led by Celsa Peiteado Morales, head of the food programme of WWF Spain, and chaired by Alfred Vernis, professor in the Esade department of general management and strategy, and expert in social innovation.
Documentary in English with subtitles in Spanish.
We hope to see you there!
