Artist Statement: Our cultures are connected in many ways by cattle. In one part of the world, the number of cattle one owns speaks to their wealth and in another part, groups are concerned about beef overproduction. This photo essay will take you through the story of cattle – their contribution to the economy, rural development, social life, and impact on the environment– across the world.


Artist Biography: #Connected2: Climate and Food Systems is created by GOAL’s NextGen Youth members from across Ireland, Ethiopia, Honduras, Malawi, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. Through the pertinent themes of Global Food Systems and Climate Change, participants learned how each relates to global citizenship and development. They created this photo exhibition to share their learnings with you and hope to raise awareness of how climate change is affecting our food systems.
