After reading through Charles Darwin Foundation’s Food System Vision, I have a better understanding of the change necessary within the Galapagos community. Specifically, mindfulness, conscious production and consumption of food, healthy community and environment, reliance on the ecosystem, and openness and self-knowledge are all areas to be valued when providing sustainability to the Galapaguenian community. While the message and intentions to better the community are clear and strong, there may be some potential obstacles hindering the success of the mission. Primarily, because of the size of the island, spreading awareness and communication is going to be a large obstacle. Promoting necessary jobs (fishing, cleaning and filtering, distribution, consumption) may be difficult while also juggling the issue of spreading the word to start the chain reaction of conscious consumption. To better overcome these obstacles, I believe allocating special attention to a couple additional areas will prove beneficial. Climate change, technology, advertising, and getting small farmers and producers to the islands are all areas that should be paid close attention to when attempting to promote small scale land and sea producers in Galapagos.
