Hungry for Change

We import nearly 50% of all our food in the UK … and waste one-third of it. So it is unsurprising that the food we eat and the way we produce it is responsible for a huge part of our carbon emissions.

Cornwall Climate Care‘s Hungry for Change, the latest episode in the Cornwall’s Climate Stories series, looks at our reliance on this intensive, hyper-globalised, fossil fuel-driven food system – which is itself becoming more and more vulnerable to climate shocks.

The film is presented by forager Josh Quick, who asks whether there are ways of producing more of our food locally and in more imaginative but less damaging ways. It takes a fascinating and inspiring look at a whole range of stories, from the gleaners picking ‘waste’ crops in our fields to projects growing food in unusual places and a microbiologist keen to get us all eating low-carbon insects.

Save Our Wild Isles: Hungry For Change

Inspired by Wild Isles, the iconic BBC nature documentary series, WWF, the RSPB, the National Trust and Silverback Films have come together to produce four films for businesses and organisations across the UK.

We will be screening one of those films, Save Our Wild Isles: Hungry for Change, alongside our own film of the same name. It reveals the impact of the food system on nature in the UK and explores what actions businesses, employees, and farmers can take to reduce their impact.

Hear from leaders in the food and farming community, including Henry Dimbleby MBE (Author of the National Food Strategy) Tony Juniper CBE (Chair, Natural England), Ken Murphy (Group Chief Executive, Tesco), Dame Sharon White (Chairman, John Lewis Partnership), nature-friendly farmers like Patrick and David Barker (Lodge Farm) and Neil Heseltine (Hill Top Farm) and others on how businesses can help solve critical issues in the food system and put nature at the heart of their decision-making.
