Nicoletta Batini, Editor, The Economics of Sustainable Food

Nicoletta Batini, Editor, The Economics of Sustainable Food

FOOD & JUSTICE w/ BRENDA SANDERS Featured Guest: Nicoletta Batini, Editor, The Economics of Sustainable Food: Smart Strategies for Health and the Planet; Lead Evaluator, Office of Independent Evaluation of the International Monetary Fund ABOUT THE ECONOMICS OF SUSTAINABLE FOOD Producing food industrially like we do today causes tremendous global economic losses in terms of malnutrition, diseases, and environmental degradation. But because the food industry does not bear those costs and the price tag for these losses does not show up at the grocery store, it is too often ignored by economists and policymakers. The Economics of Sustainable Food details the true cost of food for people and the planet. It illustrates how to transform our broken system, alleviating its severe financial and human burden. The key is smart macroeconomic policy that moves us toward methods that protect the environment like regenerative land and sea farming, low-impact urban farming, and alternative protein farming, and toward healthy diets. The book’s multidisciplinary team of authors lay out detailed fiscal and trade policies, as well as structural reforms, to achieve those goals. Visit the book’s webpage for additional info at https://islandpress.org/books/economics-sustainable-food. ABOUT NICOLETTA BATINI: Nicoletta Batini is an Italian economist, notable as a scholar of innovative monetary and fiscal policy practices. She pioneered work on the dangers of fiscal austerity and on how to curb debt successfully during financial deleveraging. Prior to the IMF, she was Advisor of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, Professor of Economics at the University of Surrey, and Director of the International Economics and Policy Office of the Treasury in Italy. She has handled extensive consultancy roles internationally. She holds a Ph.D. in international finance (Scuola Superiore S. Anna) and a Ph.D. in monetary economics.

Brenda Sanders - A Comprehensive Intersectional Approach to Vegan Activism

Brenda Sanders - A Comprehensive Intersectional Approach to Vegan Activism

Food justice activist Brenda Sanders, who organises the Vegan SoulFest in Baltimore in the USA, and founding member of PEP Foods, spoke on a comprehensive Intersectional Approach to Vegan Activism at the Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference at VegfestUK London 2016. About this talk - A Comprehensive Intersectional Approach to Vegan Activism This talk gives a foundational understanding of why an intersectional approach to vegan outreach is important, shows examples of what this kind of activism looks like, and illustrates the pitfalls of taking a non-intersectional approach when doing vegan activism. I will be using examples from our Food Justice work in the States to demonstrate how important it is to understand how to effectively engage with people who live at the intersection of multiple forms of oppression. About the speaker Brenda Sanders is a food justice activist who works to bring healthy, affordable and sustainable food choices to low-income communities in Baltimore City. As Executive Director of the Better Health, Better Life organization, Brenda runs Eating for Life, a series of free plant-based cooking classes aimed at showing people how to make healthier, kinder, more environmentally conscious food choices. As Co-Director of the animal advocacy organization Open the Cages Alliance, Brenda helps to organize the Vegan Living Program, a six-week vegan education program that teaches the basics of vegan living to people interested in transitioning to veganism. Brenda also co-created Vegan SoulFest, an annual festival that celebrates culture and the vegan lifestyle by making lectures, cooking demos, musical performances, delicious food and other products and services available to help expose people to the many benefits of the vegan lifestyle. And she's a founding member of PEP Foods, a collective of vegan food activists whose mission is to produce delicious, healthy foods that offer an affordable alternative to animal products. The main goal of PEP Foods is to increase the demand for vegan cuisine by creating great-tasting, cruelty-free products that everyone can afford. During the growing season, Brenda helps manage the Penn-North gardens, a community-based initiative to address many of the food access issues as well as the health disparities that exist in this community. http://www.brendasandersfoodjustice.blogspot.co.uk/p/about-brenda.html Other associated links This talk was given at the Pro-Intersectional Vegan Conference at VegfestUK London 2016 on Sunday October 23rd 2016 at Olympia London Conference Centre.
