And these are the parts that I have been (mostly) working on:

P.S. Just announced: The First Creating Value Centre in the World to open at University of Aalborg, Denmark
Founded by: Karina Burgdorff Jensen
Value Creation is executing pro-active, conscious, inspired or imaginative and even normal actions that increase the overall good and well-being, and the worth of ideas, goods, services, people or institutions including society, and all stakeholders (like employees, customers, partners, shareholders and society), and value waiting to happen.That is why our parents teach us to be good kids and to do good. But this is soon overtaken by the goal of making a living, of being successful.Lewis Hyde’s book, The Gift suggests that the most unbelievable gift is one with no expectations of a return, and is truly unexpected. Value Creation is all about giving, not just taking.

In September 2018, the Paris-based Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) published a report on An agro-ecological Europe by 2050: Multifunctional Agriculture for Healthy Eating, in which the authors found that a fully agro-ecological Europe could sustainably feed 530 million Europeans by 2050.
In his fascinating new book Eating Tomorrow: Agribusiness, Family Farmers, and the Battle for the Future of Food, Timothy Wise, who is senior research at the Small Planet Institute, comes to very similar conclusions for countries like Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia.I have captured the possibility of an agro-ecological future and compared it to the current reality in these two diagrams. They are too big to display, so click on each phrase below to see the full diagrams:
