Did you know that the most powerful tool we have against climate change is right at our fingertips? Your fork and how you choose to use it can make a huge difference in the global fight against the climate crisis. Eat Real is working to address both climate change and our child nutrition crisis by transforming the seven billion public school meals (and forks!) served each year to be nutritious, delicious and climate friendly.
Last November on a cold day in Boston, Eat Real CEO Nora LaTorre took this message to the inaugural TEDx Planetary Stewardship Conference. She gave her first TED talk along with many other thought leaders and activists in the climate change field. With the goal to spotlight and activate powerful ideas to shape the future of global society and the planet, the conference was attended by more than 2700 attendees and offered 100 talks, including those given by Eat Real Board of Directors member Tesha McCord Poe and major advocate Chef Tu David Phu.
Eat Real was proud to have its mission shared as a featured talk on the main stage at this inaugural event. The TEDx Planetary Stewardship Conference hoped to build a world class portfolio of innovators who will foster systemic changes in policy, narrative and implementation to create conditions to motivate individuals to action. Using compelling data and images, Nora passionately shared Eat REAL’s message and gave out bamboo fork-business cards to inspire all to get involved.
