Today kicks off the release of Episode 3: 'Beyond the Climate Crisis' a two-parter for our listeners!
About the episode: Beyond the Climate Crisis
It is clear that we are not just in the midst of a climate crisis. A lot more is at stake. Last year, environmental scientists warned that the earth is now ‘well outside the safe operating space for humanity’ because multiple ‘planetary boundaries’ have been broken.
In the first part of our double 'Beyond the Climate Crisis' episode, Mathieu is joined by Kristiaan Kok, Assistant Professor at the Athena Institute of VU Amsterdam. They discuss the environmental, social and economic impacts of the global food system, as well its relation to the climate crisis. Kris also talks about how we can truly transform the system to make it more fair and sustainable.
