SEED WARRIORS FILM NIGHT

“What happens in 30 years when water scarcity, land erosion and high temperatures bring about major losses in food production? How will the world be fed? Up in the Norwegian permafrost the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, nicknamed the “Doomsday Vault,” houses thousands of duplicate seed samples (“spare” copies) held in gene banks worldwide. But is it a safeguard for the world’s biodiversity, or a utopian imagining of global food security? Is there enough research into crisis-tolerant varieties essential to survive the food crisis, and what are the dangers of uncharacterized crop seed storage? With commentaries by world thinkers such as Wangari Maathai (Nobel Peace Prize winner and political activist based in Nairobi, Kenya) and Cary Fowler (the initiator of the Svalbard Vault and executive director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust), Seed Warriors explores the human struggle against food insecurity, and weighs the realism and idealism of scientists in the face of necessary protection against the imminent crisis.

Wellness is the No 1 Essential Service that must be relocalized for all of us to lead prosperous lives and actually reduce our energy footprint.
