Lexicon of Sustainability: Eating down the food chain

Lexicon of Sustainability: Eating down the food chain

The Lexicon of Sustainability Project is based on a simple premise: people can’t be expected to live more sustainable lives if they don’t even know the most basic terms and principles that define sustainability. For the past three years Douglas Gayeton and Laura Howard-Gayeton have crisscrossed the USA to learn this new language of sustainability from over one hundred of its foremost practitioners in food and farming — from Alice Waters, to Wes Jackson, Joel Salatin, Vandana Shiva, and Will Allen. These insights have been translated into large format “information art” photo collages and a series of short films. Study guides, a book, a traveling show, installations, and lastly a website where people can dig deeper into these terms (and even add to our ever-evolving lexicon) are also under development.
