An opinion piece for Planted, questioning why we live in a world where healthy nutritious food costs more than chemically-doused versions. I urge for us to admit our wrongs, leave our egos at the door, mute the shareholders and elevate our citizens by addressing and challenging engrained societal inequalities as the root of humanity’s problems.
On 28th March 2022, I was invited to act as a witness to an event organised by The Faculty of Royal Designers for Industry and the 1851 Royal Commission, staged at the V&A museum in London. Titled All Change: Design and Science in a time of Crisis, the afternoon event explored how science and design can collaborate in service of a sustainable and equitable future.
I participated in talks and workshops alongside about 50 new and established designers and scientists. I was tasked to write a summary of the multifarious conversations and topics raised over the invigorating 4 hour event.
