#146 Changing the World Through Small Actions with Pam Warhurst CBE

20 Apr 2022

You’re in for an amazing ride with Pam Warhurst CBE. If you don’t know her from the classic TED Talk “How we can eat our landscapes”, please do give it a watch. It raises the hairs on the back of my neck every time I listen to it. Pam is literally the most inspiring, enthusiastic and engaging speaker I know. And wow, she knows how to start a revolution through conversation.

Pam has believed in the potential of the individual to work with others towards a kinder future for all for many years. As co-founder of Incredible Edible, an international initiative that began in Northern England, she uses the Trojan horse of local food growing to demonstrate the power of small actions in bringing about major cultural shifts.

By growing food locally on unused land, sharing the food skills that exist across the community and supporting local sticky money economies, the Incredible Edible movement has demonstrated that citizens activism moves folks from bystanders into local investors of time and resource.

What started in a working class market town called Todmorden, has now sprung activism across the globe. I really hope Pam’s story inspires you to a). Consider growing in your local community and b). Start a revolution yourself.

If there’s something you’re passionate about or want to change let Pam inspire you with her own words:

“We the people could lead the way. We could stop being done to and start doing. We could stop waiting for those leaders to be brave, and get on creating that kinder future for ourselves.”
