Frances Moore Lappé will explore how “following the food” can help us grasp the roots of the climate crisis—with its health impacts worsening Covid-19 impacts—that lie within our failing mindset about democracy, the market system, and the meaning ​of freedom. She’ll share her own beginning almost 50 years ago when the world was gripped by fear of scarcity and share her journey to move from a mindset of scarcity toward that of alignment with nature—including human nature. She will close by probing the meaning of courage in this do-or-die moment for our planet.
