Building a Better Future: Critical Questions on Food

by Alex Steffen, Jennifer Daniel

December 8, 2009




This is one of eight sets of questions to consider when envisioning a city that can win the climate fight. Read the introduction, and take a look at an overview of all eight.



How well do you eat? Is fresh and local food readily available, and where is food grown in your area? Are people there more overweight than average, and are they getting healthier or not? How much meat does the average person eat? How many greenhouse gasses does the average person in your city emit through their diet, and how does that compare with cities that are increasingly diet-conscious, like San Francisco?
