Farming and Climate Change | His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales | TEDxSustainableFoodTrust

We stand at a critical moment in history for food and farming. During the last century, our extractive farming practices have contributed to the depletion of nature and brought us to the brink of a planetary emergency, resulting in climate change, catastrophic biodiversity decline and a crisis for public health. With half of our land now used for agriculture, farmers across the globe have become the primary stewards of nature, climate and health. Yet their delivery of public goods requires redesigning our businesses and industries away from systems based on extraction and growth and towards approaches based on the principles of regeneration, sustainability and the circular economy. During this talk, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales shares support for an international harmonised framework for measuring farm sustainability. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is the eldest son of The Queen and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Throughout the years, he has expressed a wide range of interests as reflected in The Prince of Wales’s Charities, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is Patron or President, including the Sustainable Food Trust. He has long been an advocate for sustainability in British farming, raising awareness around the main issues we face, and helping to build a more sustainable future for our food systems. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
