Integral ecology means realizing the deep interconnectedness of political, economic, human, environmental, social, and cultural pillars, which is unfortunately often lacking in many large companies’ approaches to sustainability. A strategy to take care of the food system cannot ignore an important transformative factor, largely independent of governmental and institutional actions: a change in mindset, which can only come from spreading a broader awareness about food. This module focuses on regeneration, starting with the soil: regenerating the Earth must be a process and mindset that takes time, the time of nature’s cycles. It is a circle that begins with individuals returning the value of beauty to society and the economy. People and communities are expanding their vision beyond what we need today and tomorrow to what we need 20 years from now. This replaces quick fixes with completely dismantling our thinking to rebuild a more future-oriented mindset.
