The first event in our Food Talks series – brought to you by Impact Hub Kings Cross in partnership with the Food Ethics Council, Organico and Think.Eat.Drink – is entitled “Sustainable food uncovered”. It features leading speakers, Professor Tim Benton (University of Leeds and UK Champion for Global Food Security) and Aniol Esteban (Head of Environmental Economics from the New Economics Foundation). The discussion will be chaired by Dan Crossley, Executive Director of the Food Ethics Council.
We will look at what is meant by ‘sustainable food’ and ‘a sustainable food system’ – and the challenges of making it a reality. We will then explore one of the major dilemmas within this, namely the question of whether growth and sustainability are compatible. There will be a q&a session followed by a delicious and free buffet supplied by co-sponsors Organico and TED. The idea of our Food Talks series is to stimulate debate and constructive thinking about the issues that surround the world of food. Future Food Talks are planned for June 25th, September 24th and December 10th. Please join us.
