    Kevin Farmer and myself take on the full show this week as we try out a more free form format this week (OK I just didn't have time to book a guest) but it turned out great! The primary difference was that we had topics and no guest, but also that we were taking live twitter comments and questions, interactive woo! Let us know what you think and if there's enough demand we will do more shows like this.

Food Forward is a not-for-profit that educates and advocates for smart food policy in Toronto, particularly with relation to poverty and access to healthy food for all. Vanessa is a passionate food advocate, and talks to us about food access, poverty and public policy as well as helping us understand the CaterToronto initiative they offer in particular. Stefan, Kevin and I spend the rest of the show digging into the recent "blockbuster" announcement of a non-binding agreement with China to curb carbon in the near future.

Our main interview is with Mike Morrice, executive director and co-founder of the Sustainability CoLab. SCoLab was started as a Waterloo project to help provide metrics for cities and businesses to measure and thereby effectively implement voluntary sustainability initiatives. SCoLab’s approach is different in the emphasis on metrics but also by taking the idea that it’s participants should be celebrated for the changes they can and do make, rather than attacking them for what they aren’t doing. SCoLab has seen a huge expansion since it’s inception and is now a big player in the sustainability field in Canada. We do this all this and more for basically not
