A FoF Journalist writtes, documents and/or edits stories about sustainable & healthy food for pople & planet. Sharing what, how & why is going on in the world around her/him.
The scope and rich diversity within the world of food is hard to capture in a single glance or way of thinking. Conversations about food tend to be complex subjects with great deal of subtle differences of perspectives and meanings.
Stories are complex and deeply meaningful forms of communicating perspectives and ideas. They differ substantially from narrow explanations of ideas by maintaining a personally empathic dimension that serves the interpreter as a sense making tool to better judge and interpret what is being communicated.
We are inspired by the development of Backpack Journalism http://bpjournalism.eu/ in the EU, i.e the idea that anyone can become a journalist with basic IT equipment that fits in a backpack in todays growing world of online social media. Please watch also watch Clay Shirky’s TED talk about how internet will (one day) transform government.
