Welcome, my name is Frank and I want to invite you on an adventure.

It's 2018, I'm drinking coffee with a friend and we start talking about the effects of climate change.

coffee one

I was 15 when I made my first website about melting glaciers and polar bears.

I had realised that the world isn't fair. I felt guilty about how rich and privileged I was as a kid from Europe.

But guilt turned into purpose: to use my lucky situation to make a positive impact.

My coffee is almost empty when my friend asks about the solutions for climate change.
coffee two

But I have no answers. All this time I've had a passion for climate change without a clue what to do about it!?

In university, I wanted to write my thesis about solar panels.

But my advisor told me that I would have to choose a topic I knew something about.

So I wrote about social media instead...

I really care about climate change. But maybe I'm not technical enough to understand it?

coffee 3

Maybe climate change isn't where I can make an impact.

Maybe I've chosen the wrong passion...

But I'm not ready to give up climate change, yet.

books

I'm reading all kinds of books, trying to see what would make a difference.

And slowly it starts to make sense...

If food is such a big problem, it can also be a huge solution!
More info

In the book 'Drawdown', the third and fourth-best solution to reduce CO2-eq emissions is reducing food waste and eating a plant-rich diet. In their updated, report they moved to spot one and three.

Food is not only a big solution from a global perspective, but also for an individual because food makes up one of the biggest emission categories (35% in the Netherlands).

But food is not only important for CO2 emissions. Agriculture plays an even bigger role in land use, water use, biodiversity loss and eutrophication (water pollution).

choices

I'm really excited because we don't need complicated technology to solve food problems!

All we need is better choices from regular people like you and me.

It gets even better: our food choices can not only stop the damage, they can also heal the Earth.

I've never been a foodie but now I realise that cooking is my daily chance to restore the planet.
camp-fire

Food is like voting three times a day in what kind of world we want to live.

There's just one problem: I don't like vegetarian cooking.
Most recipes have ingredients I don't know. Or it's a salad that doesn't fill me.

So I decide to look for better recipes and that's the beginning of Fork Ranger.

In order to make a real difference, I can't go this journey alone.

Will you join me on this adventure?

 

Together we'll explore how to eat more sustainably and become true Fork Rangers.
