As we look forward to the new year, we've also reflected on the old, and rediscovered some of the great events, innovations, interviews and debates that 2008 had to offer. For the next week, we will be sharing our picks from the Worldchanging team's best work from the last 12 months. Come back each day for a new collection of posts on topics from climate change to transportation, energy to health and society.
Today's Topic: Health, Food and Society
How will the future affect our health and our societies? Perhaps more importantly, how can we begin to change our approaches to social and civic life now, in order to create the kind of future that we want? In the past year, many of our posts discussed what the future might hold for what we eat, what we learn, how we spend our time and how we relate to one another. Today we look at the best posts from 2008 that discuss health, food and society:
