“Food already shapes our world – so why not use it as a tool to shape a better one?” Carolyn Steel is a leading thinker on food and cities. She is a London-based architect, lecturer, BBC presenter and TEDGlobal speaker who coined ‘Sitopia’ – now a widely-recognised way of seeing the world through the lens of food. Carolyn has spoken with governments, institutes, and schools all over the world, explaining how we can make a revolutionary change simply by understanding and valuing our food, and how by looking through the lens of food we can practically design a better future.
