Food Choices and Climate Change

Join Robin Matathias, Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies at Keene State College, for a class in celebration of Earth Day 2021. This class will explore the connection between food choices, food production systems, and their impacts on both human and environmental health.

Learn how your food choices can be the best way to prevent catastrophic climate change. Discover which foods and agricultural practices contribute most to climate change and what you can do about it. Learn how to cut your carbon footprint in half just by making changes in what you eat. We will connect this important issue to population. The U.N. predicts 9 billion people by 2050. How can we provide healthy food and clean water to 9 billion people without destroying our fragile ecosystems or engaging in conflicts over diminishing resources? This class will teach you about true sustainability, about supporting 9 billion people while mitigating climate change. In this class, you will discover that everything you do really does make a difference!
