Brighter Green Participates in Food Day 2012

November 2, 2012
For Food Day 2012 Brighter Green hosted an online event for Food Day: a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable and sustainable food. We screened three movies related to global industrial food production, produced by Brighter Green and by Green Planet Films. We also held a Facebook discussion, which is still available for participation. What's For Dinner? is not currently available for public viewing, but the other two other videos are still available.

Video 1: Brighter Green's very own What's for Dinner?; an eye-opening documentary that explores the changes in food production and consumption in fast-globalizing China. Given that every fifth person in the world is Chinese, what the Chinese eat and how China produces its food, affects not only China, but the world, too. For more information on What's For Dinner?
