Medium: Photography

Artist Statement: Society places value on the commercial products that come from farms & the same society vilifies the methane-emitting cows – little attention is paid to the extraordinary lengths that farmers go to safeguard the earth that feeds us: the carbon sequestered, the trees planted, the biodiversity supported.


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.
