Welcome

Hello. My name is Samuel Smith. I work in the curious field of sustainability, with an interest in how we can be smarter in the way we live and interact with our planet and each other. In particular, I’m interested in how we create a big shift in our food and farming systems so that they support better livelihoods, healthier lifestyles and ecosystems. Also, how our energy system will become smarter and renewable-based and how we move towards a more co-operative and collaborative economy.

I work at Forum for the Future, mostly focusing on food-related projects.

On the rare occasion I post a blog, I tend to write about food, sustainability and travel, dipping into other topics such as music and social enterprise. I also have a Tumblr feed to share the odd photo or music.

In my spare time, I play guitar and old-time fiddle, go swimming in wild places, climb mountains and enjoy exploring places on my bike. I also love to DJ, playing all sorts of musical curiosities – here’s more information about that.
