This week, we look at how Jackson Family Wines is helping expand opportunities for students of color in the wine industry, experimental approaches to preserving the Arctic, and a new blueprint to help governments to better align corporate behavior with public interest. Plus, insights into how a sustainable food future will require both healthy livestock and less land-based agriculture. Onward!

Farming More Seaweed Could Be Sustainable Way Forward for Food, Feed, Fuel
Seaweed has great potential as a superfood and a building block for products including plastics, fibers and fuel. Expanding seaweed farming could help reduce demand for crops on land and global GHGs from agriculture by up to 2.6B tonnes of CO2e per year.

A Sustainable Future Requires Healthy Animals
The FAO estimates livestock emissions could fall by 30% through wider adoption of existing technologies and best practices in animal health and husbandry. Only by taking a holistic food-systems approach that includes sustainable livestock can we make meaningful progress toward Sustainable Development Goals around hunger, poverty and climate action.
