Food Security Education
Food security is one of the most pressing social issues of the 21st century and one that affects us all.
Everyone needs access to a safe, adequate and nutritious food supply.
Everyone can play a role in local and global food security.
Food security can be a complex and multi-faceted area of local and global concern.
Global issues such as: climate change, an ageing and dwindling farming workforce, disruptive technologies, water shortages, uncertain global financial systems, seed patents and seed shortages, farm debt and biodiversity loss are all becoming major factors in 21st century food production and food security. These issues are looming against the backdrop of a rapidly increasing population. The world’s current population is expected to increase from the current 7.2 billion to 9.2 billion people by 2050. The United Nation estimates food production will have to increase by a whopping 60% over the next 30 years to meet growing demand (Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, 2009).

Food Security Education
Organisations can book Michael as a guest speaker to learn more about this fascinating and vital topic. You will have the opportunity to learn about aspects of the food chain and food production that most people are totally unaware of.
Michael has spoken about and worked on food security projects both locally and internationally for 25 years.
Michael’s educational, interactive and mind-blowing food security training presentations discuss the three critical issues that make up food security:
- What is true food security,
- Why we need to take it seriously and,
- How each of us can be involved in 21st century solutions.
Michael’s presentations inform, challenge and motivate individuals to want to take action and be part of the growing community of food securers.
