Artist Statement: Waste is the most obvious output in the food cycle. Instead of throwing it away, it can be reused, recycled or repurposed. For example, used coffee grounds and egg shells are useful in gardening as natural fertilisers and pest repellents! They can also be used for beauty purposes such as face scrubs or face masks. They’re natural, Earth-friendly and free!


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.
