The IKEA Foundation podcast

Feast your ears on a food revolution

We’re taking a break from our sabbatical to share with you that we are supporting a special series on the Future of Food from the amazing team at Outrage + Optimism.

If you’re familiar with the show, you’ll know that host and former UN Chief Christiana Figueres and the team, who were instrumental in driving forward the Paris Agreement, take the fear and uncertainty surrounding climate change and face it head-on. Interview guests from industry experts to celebrities take listeners on a journey to not only understand the issues at hand, but also to be inspired by the solutions that are already out there.

Over the coming months, the podcasts will take a critical look at the issues facing our current food systems, and will speak to people in the food world, from farmers to opinion leaders, and from food companies to chefs, about the revolution spreading across the globe and the transformations taking place that re-evaluate how we produce what we put on our plate, and how we value the people and the planet that make it possible.
