Sonalie Figueiras on Future Food and Climate
Play • 53 min

Sonalie Figueiras is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Green Queen, an award winning climate news media business based in Hong Kong and one of the leading voices in the conversation around the impact of our food systems on the climate. We are far less in control of the food we eat than we think and we will not solve the climate crisis without addressing the way we eat and produce food. Co-hosting this episode with me is Will Cheshier, the host of the Talkin' Solutions podcast.

In this episode we discuss:

  • That food accounts for 30% of all greenhouse gas emissions;
  • The different types of alternative protein products in the market from plant-based meat, cultivated meat to precision fermentation;
  • Alternative protein and health;
  • The role of regenerative farming in climate change solutions;
  • How to have difficult conversations around food and it's impact on the climate;
  • Ways in which we can adopt more conscious food choices.
