Artist Statement: This image represents the overconsumption of red meat in Western Europe. In many supermarkets, healthier, more environmentally friendly options are often expensive or unavailable. Although beef production is unsustainable, many farmers do not have access to supports that would allow them to implement more sustainable practices.
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.
