Artist Statement: Distribution is a crucial, often overlooked part of the global food system. Without it, grocery stores, markets, & more, would have empty shelves and stalls. It connects the products of primary processes (farming, milking, butchering, etc) to customers. To ensure that our food systems are truly sustainable, distribution must be a major part.


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.
