Eleni Michael is the epitome of passion for food, not just what’s on the plate but the full spectrum of the food journey. Where environment, people, culture and experiences intersect and interface. Food is foundational to our experience as people, we also now understand its criticality in the future of our planet. Having recently completed a Regenerative Food Systems program, she is a Food & Climate Shaper at the Future Food Institute and FAO (Food and Agricultural Organization) of the United Nations, while also supporting Charles Michel’ School of Conscious Eating Community. Eleni is currently looking at the centrality of gastronomy in regenerating the present for a sustainable future as part of her Master’s in Food Anthropology.
I had an illuminating conversation with Eleni to understand what’s happening with food systems and sustainability. Eleni explains these challenges simply and clearly – this isn’t just a conversation for the food nerd, it’s important for all of us to start to understand what’s happening with our food systems. I ask the tough questions, like balancing personal needs vs environmental and we talk about some of the misconceptions around the relationship between our environmental crisis and food (hint hint: almond milk). There’s a lot to cover under this banner, but I think this conversation is a great starting point.
