The food system needs to dramatically reduce its physical footprint, decarbonize, and adopt circular management of key inputs.
Urban areas and their hinterlands should foster strong communities and the development of local, resilient, and circular value chains.
People’s values should integrate the interconnectedness with, and dependency on, natural systems (rather than the consumerism that currently dominates modern human lives).
Material efficiency, decarbonization, and circular principles need to be embedded in the full value chain of all goods and services.
Our global system should favor more longer-term perspectives that do not sacrifice the well-being of humans or ecosystems for the sake of financial gain.
Decision-making must draw on the best available knowledge, and governance structures become more distributed (and not disproportionately benefit those with wealth or power).
