In this inspiring TED talk, Pam Warhurst tells the story of how a conversation round a kitchen table changed the narrative of food production in her town of Todmorden, England. The conversation started with a question:
Can we find a unifying language that cuts across age and income and culture that will help people themselves find a new way of living, see spaces around them differently, think about the resources they use differently, interact differently? Can we find that language?And then, can we replicate those actions?
And the answer would appear to be yes, and the language would appear to be food.
Collective leadership – a vision of how things could be – driven by the intelligence of the community, plus very small changes birthed a global movement – Incredible Edible. And not a flipping strategy document in sight!
