Keeping you updated on Food Planet developments – as they unfold

The news flow about Food Planet issues is most often dark, exposing the current food system’s many inadequacies and malfunctions, and linking them to climate change, decaying living environments and decreasing biodiversity.

But all is not doom and gloom; it’s vital to spot the good news and identify the people, projects, and ideas that may be part of turning the tide. Some of the positive initiatives we bring to light are covered in our Nominations and Editors’ Pick sections; others will be featured here, in their proper context and in full detail.

In this section, we also invite people in our network to express their opinions on food system-related issues, successively turning News & Views into a mission-driven discussion platform exploring how we can save the Food Planet.
