Today, we launch the EAT in Sustainia publication that highlights the opportunities and solutions outlining the food systems of tomorrow. A week ago, the UN adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, which range from eradicating poverty and hunger, to protecting our land and oceans, to limiting climate change. And today is World Food Day , which urges the global community to realize the connection between food and rural poverty. Climate change, hunger, inequality, poverty, protection of land and oceans, reduction of global emissions.
While these seem like disconnected challenges, there is one key thread that connects them and offers an entry point for change: food! By now, it is an established fact that our current food systems are unsustainable for our planet, our health, and our economics. Moreover, our food systems are failing at one of their most basic jobs: keeping us healthy.
In , approximately million people do not have enough food , 1. The World Health Organization WHO has determined that dietary factors account for at least 30 percent of all cancers in Western countries and up to 20 percent in developing countries. This is putting a strain on global economies and the loss of biodiversity and the costs of NCDs are counted in trillions. Looking ahead, we risk scaling up unhealthy and unsustainable systems to meet the appetites of the 9.
In order to create truly sustainable societies, food has to become a focus point. Zooming in on the SDGs we see that many are either directly or indirectly related to food, and thus present us with the opportunity to use sustainable food systems as entry-points to achieving the SDG agenda. For instance, a goal of creating good jobs and economic growth cannot overlook that farming represents the largest employment sector in the world.
Smallholder farmers provide up to 80 percent of the food supply in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. Providing them with better access to resources, innovations, and markets will not only help the individual farmer to secure a more sustainable livelihood, but also create ripple effects for his or her family, and local economy. Yet, women own less than 2 percent of land globally. Many of the man-made challenges we face are complex and interconnected, but recalibrating our food systems to become healthy and sustainable will catalyze positive change in all areas of society.
Luckily, all over the world, solutions are sprouting within the triple-helix of food, health, and sustainability and these opportunities are outlining the food systems of tomorrow.

Easy sudokus bore you, but The Black Belt collection never will. I live on many shores, and I want to bring an informed cultural view—or multicultural view—to the topic of this book. I grew up in Belgium, studied in Israel, and finished my training in the United States. Shuttling between various cultures for more than thirty years, I have formed the perspective of someone who is comfortable watching from the sidelines.
This vantage point has provided me with multiple perspectives for my observations on how we develop sexually, how we connect to one another, how we narrate love, and how we engage in the pleasures of the body. For intercultural couples, the cultural shifts do not stem from a geographic move, but instead take place in their own living rooms.
The Erotic Life of Emptiness
What really piqued my interest was how this merging of cultures influenced gender relations and child-rearing practices. I pondered the many meanings of marriage, and how its role and its place in the larger family system varies in different national contexts. Is it a private act of two individuals or a communal affair between two families?
In my sessions with couples, I tried to discern the cultural nuances behind the discussion of commitment, intimacy, pleasure, orgasm, and the body. Love may be universal, but its constructions in each culture are defined, both literally and figuratively, in different languages. I was particularly sensitive to the conversations about child and adolescent sexuality because it is in messages to children that societies most reveals their values, goals, incentives, prohibitions.

Their individual stories highlight the cultural and psychological forces that shape how we love and how we desire. One of my most formative personal experiences underlying this book may seem circuitous, but I must reveal it to you, as it sheds a light on the deeper motivations that fuel my passion. My parents were survivors of Nazi concentration camps.
For a number of years, they stood face-to-face with death every day. My mother and father were the sole survivors of their respective families. They came out of this experience wanting to charge at life with a vengeance and to make the most of each day. They both felt that they had been granted a unique gift: living life again. My parents were unusual, I think. They possessed a thirst for life, thrived on exuberant experiences, and loved to have a good time. They cultivated pleasure.

I know absolutely nothing about their sexual life except that they had two children, my brother and me. But by the way they lived, I sensed that they had a deep understanding of eroticism. Though I doubt that they ever used this word, they embodied its mystical meaning as a quality of aliveness, a pathway to freedom—not just the narrow definition of sex that modernity has assigned to it.
It is this expanded understanding that I bring to bear on my discussion of eroticism in this book. There is yet another powerful influence that has helped shape this project. By restoring their sense of creativity and their capacity for play and pleasure, these survivors are ultimately helped to reconnect with life and the hope that fuels it.
My husband deals with pain; I deal with pleasure.
