“Think Globally, Act Locally” is a slogan from the ’60s and ’70s. You may have seen this slogan on bumper stickers, t-shirts, and maybe even a billboard or two. It’s a slogan that could easily be applied to something as basic as the food we eat. In this Truthout Interviews, writer, director and organic food advocate Maryam Henein discusses a piece she wrote for Truthout that highlights a UN report that advocates ending industrialized farming and creating more local, organic farms to boost not only nutrition, but also reduce greenhouse gasses and the use of harmful chemicals and drugs that are part of global corporate farming practices.
