Food for Change

Our plate is our most powerful weapon in fighting global warming and in protecting our planet.

Today, our diets play a major role in the threats weighing on our planet. But, there is hope. Investigative journalist Benoît Bringer sets off on a global search for women and men who are inventing a new dietary model — one which respects both humankind and nature.

This documentary gives us hope, showing us how we can each be a force for change and develop recipes for an economically viable dietary transition.
