TEDxKrakow - Julian Rose - Local Solutions to Global Problems

Sir Julian Rose is one of the pioneers of organic farming methods in the UK. Through his work on his own farm setting standards for quality organic foods, his participation on national committees concerned with the British rural economy, and organizations that he has founded, Julian Rose works to protect family farms, quality foods, and the rural economy.The global economy is under severe strain and the resources that it draws upon are rapidly diminishing. The globalised food chain is equally precarious and is unable to provide for an increasing demand for local, fresh and seasonal foods.Both have to face the need to cut back hard on CO2 and other toxic emissions associated with climate change.This suggests that a sea change is in store for the way we run our economies, generate our energy and market our foods.Local solutions are now on the agenda. Not as a retreat into the past, but as a necessity in bringing to fruition the untapped potential of community resources in fulfilling the sustainable 'low impact' imperatives of the 21st century.About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations).Subtitles:Polish:Translation: Krystian ApartaEnglish:Original subtitles: Jerzy Pa?Review: Krystian Aparta
