Halki Summit II – Session IV

Raj Patel, award-winning writer, activist and academic, presented on ecology, love, and the art of food. Patel’s masterful lecture included the environmental impacts of the food industry and the role food, food preparation, and eating plays in society. Patel encouraged the participants to discuss the ways we can breakdown and rebuild our ecologies. “There is joy and pleasure to be had in moving away from common practice and toward communal property and communal practice.”
