Feeding Nine Billion has created this sensible, easy-to-understand video about food shortages, their causes, and strategies on avoiding them. It’s narrated by Evan Fraser of the University of Guelph in Canada, and it is really interesting. If you don’t think you can watch 12 minutes of video, treat it like a podcast and do something else while you listen. (Which is what I did because my audio-visual attention span is worthless.)
The video doesn’t address explicitly vegan concerns, but we’re all humans, and we certainly believe that access to sufficient, nutritious food is a human right. Check out Feeding Nine Billion to find out more about the project.
