One of the greatest challenges for global transformation is mindset shift – and because, in terms of food systems, this transformation needs to happen in so many places at once, it can be very difficult for individuals to feel that they’re actually making a difference. The Inner Development Goals framework has been developed to support and foster the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Alongside this, the UN Development Programme has established the Conscious Food Systems Alliance.
ffinlo Costain talks to Thomas Legrand, author of Politics of Being, and Lead Technical Advisor to the Conscious Food Systems Alliance – and Klaudia Shevelyuk, a sustainability consultant and communications manager for the UN’s Inner Development Goals. Klaudia also talks about her harrowing experience of conflict in Ukraine, and explains how the IDGs helped her to cope.
