After watching the most recent Stockholm Hub check in, I wonder if anyone has thoughts on cultural globalization’s role in suppressing local historical eating habits and growing unsustainable food preferences?

    I feel like cultural globalization has a negative climate impact almost everywhere. My reasoning is that local cultures are often built around what is locally available, and also on a belief that we need to take care of our local environment that takes care of us. When cultural influences spread across borders, that makes us more likely to import things long distances, or manufacture them in unsustainable ways because it's not in line with our local nature. Food is a great example, in the Nordic countries where produce like grapes, avocado and exotic fruit are common ingredients in our food, while it can't be reliably grown in our own country. We could win a lot by learning more about our local history and culture and act more in that way.
