Yes… But…

Friday, May 3, 2013
Rich and deep conversations are the hallmark of CERES conferences and this year in San Francisco was no exception, as CERES looks forward to its 25th anniversary in 2014.

Buses and Sustainability

Tuesday, April 30, 2013
I have buses on my mind – lots and lots of school buses sitting in parking lots all over the world.

Enough Defining

Friday, April 19, 2013
Implementation, not definition, is the challenge for sustainability today.

On Hunger and Respect in America

Wednesday, February 13, 2013
As Representative Jim McGovern said from the floor of the House of Representatives a few days before president Obama’s State of the Union last evening, “Hunger is a political condition.”

“Pandora’s Promise” – Can it Be Kept?

Monday, January 28, 2013
Richard Stone has produced a provocative and important new documentary on nuclear power that was screened this week at the Sundance Film Festival. But as important as it is, Pandora’s Promise is a film that in its current configuration undermines itself.

The American Table: James Beard to 7-Eleven

Wednesday, January 23, 2013
From the Beard Foundation 2013 conference-planning meeting – the focus this year will be ‘appetite’ – to the screening last week at the Ford Foundation of A Place at the Table, the importance of food as central to a sustainable future is becoming ever clearer.

Regulating the Playing Field

Of Language, Geography and Mosaics

Sunday, November 18, 2012
If Americans and Brits are “separated by a common language,” then Israelis and Palestinians are surely divided by a shared geography. Here in London, small daily protests outside the Israeli embassy brought British riot police into the streets adjacent to the new Whole Foods market in the tony Kensington region aglow with pre-Christmas displays.

Explaining the U.S. Presidential Election

Thursday, November 8, 2012
As I prepare for meetings next week in London, and a presentation to Unilever, I wonder what I will be asked about the U.S. election – how to make sense of it. The explanations and interpretations are many.

A Place at The Table

Sunday, October 21, 2012
As a trustee of The Marcus Foundation I am honored that we have launched a new initiative to bring renewed attention and policy change to ending hunger in America, through collaboration with Participant Media and A Place at The Table. This effort was recognized by The James Beard Foundation during its 2012 annual awards dinner this week in New York City.
