Description

Understanding Food and Climate Change: An Interactive Guide uses video, photography, text, and interactive experiences to help educators, students, and advocates learn how food and climate systems interact and how personal choices can make a difference. Ideal for grades 8–12 and general audiences, and aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies themes, the guide offers activities for student research and resources for further investigation. The guide is also designed to support self-guided and independent study, and is a boon for advocates seeking fresh, hopeful strategies for positive change.

Understanding Food and Climate Change: A Systems Perspective explores the links between food systems and our changing climate with an emphasis on systems thinking. The systems approach in these essays illuminates how seemingly disconnected phenomena are often dynamically linked and can be understood best when viewed in a larger context. An extensive bibliography provides resources for further investigation.

Used together, these publications provide a foundation for deepening our understanding of how we interact with human and natural systems, and how we can respond with hopeful actions.
