The ladder: from non-awareness to making food security central
This table describes the various stages we have seen people develop through as their awareness of the significance of water and food security rises and as it begins to become part of their daily lives.
|OUR CULTURE||We get actively involved in promoting food and water security for all as a cornerstone of a culture of peace and prosperity|
|LOCAL INVOLVEMENT: RESILIENCE||We engage with local authorities to do what we can to ensure food and water security is part of emergency preparedness and resilience|
|COMMUNITY||We get together with others to form food cooperatives, CSAs and eco-villages etc|
||We start to grow food at home, in an allotment or similar. We learn and practice techniques of preservation|
|LEARNING: SUSTAINABILITY||We start to lean more about the impact of food on our health and of production practices on the environment|
|NOT FOR US||We buy food from the shop and don’t think any more about it|
The Transition movement have come far in creating a vision and launching practical initiatives for bringing resilience and sustainable food security to a community. Follow the links below for more information.
