Dave Wood's curator insight, March 7, 2013 5:30 PM

A nice videoscribe  about the difference between fast and slow thinking.  Theres a useful reference to the concept of "priming" which operates out of conscious awareness.  Graphic and visual coaching creates the space for the client to do some slow thinking and resolve challenges that fast thinking hasn't reolved.

How Food Waste Costs Our Cities Millions | TheCityFix

How Food Waste Costs Our Cities Millions | TheCityFix | Sustainable Futures | Scoop.it

It would take farm land the size of Mexico just to grow the amount of food that humans produce, but do not eat, every year.


More food goes uneaten at the consumption phase of the supply chain—in places like homes, restaurants and cafeterias—than at any other stage. Almost all urban areas experience high levels of food waste—food that is fit for consumption when it reaches consumers but is discarded before or after spoiling. While food waste presents significant challenges, addressing waste also provides an opportunity for growing cities to reduce their carbon emissions, curb deforestation, and mitigate water withdrawals caused by agriculture.
