We want to seed thousands of experiments to feed the world! We know, it feels overwhelming. How will we grow enough to feed the 9 billion people expected by 2050? What will we grow, and where will we grow it? With the sweat of whose brow? Using what kinds of science and technology? How will we make it resilient to climate change? And how will we make sure that everyone at the table gets to eat a fair share?
The good news is that thousands of groups already have answers. We want to explore those answers, showing how to fix the world’s food system through the unexpected stories from unlikely people discovering unbounded ways to feed the planet. Raj Patel’s forthcoming book, GENERATION FOOD, takes a global look at how different generations are caring for one another over a shared table. Making sure that there’s enough good food for everyone. Helmed by acclaimed director Steve James, the GENERATION FOOD documentary project will chronicle the complex and contradictory journey to find sustainable solutions to feed the world. By the end of the film, the audience will wonder not ‘what can I do?’, but ‘when can we start!?’
