The language of food system transformation with Douglas Gayeton
Douglas Gayeton is my guest on this episode of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. In 2009 Douglas founded the Lexicon of Sustainability alongside his partner Laura Howard Gayeton. The Lexicon’s work accelerates the adoption of practices that build more resilient food systems and help combat climate change. Douglas is an information architect, filmmaker, photographer and writer. He has created award-winning work at the boundaries of traditional and converging media since the early 90’s. He directed the KNOW YOUR FOOD series for PBS and GROWING ORGANIC for USDA, and has authored two books, SLOW: Life in a Tuscan Town, and LOCAL: The New Face of Food & Farming in America. What can food startups us about ways to transform our food system? To find out, Douglas’s Green Brown Blue Circular Economy of Food accelerator teamed with Thought for Food on the Circular Economy of Food Challenge to develop food system solutions that have a truly positive social and ecological impact, that go beyond sustainability, and build a truly circular economy of food.
