Artist Statement: A changing climate affects planting & harvest in many regions. In recent years, heavy flood rains & droughts have prevented people planting & harvesting according to normal growing seasons. A lack of fair trade in many places forces co-workers into competition to provide the best goods at the lowest price.
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.
