Food Talks – Fishy Business
The sixth event of our series is entitled “Fishy Business”. It takes place on 30th June 2016 (6.30-9pm) at the Impact Hub King’s Cross. The event features leading speakers including Steve Trent (Founder & Executive Director of the Environmental Justice Foundation) and Emily Howgate (International Coordinating Director, International Pole & Line Foundation). The discussion will be chaired by Dan Crossley, Executive Director of the Food Ethics Council. Please note that the password is “foodtalks“.
Fish forms an important part of a healthy diet, but many global fisheries have been overfished in recent decades. Have recent attempts to sustainably manage fisheries paid off? Will there always be ‘another fish in the sea’ for our children and grandchildren? Is fish a success story for sustainability? If not, what are the problems and answers needed? What about fish farming – aquaculture – whose growth has risen exponentially in the last decade? How should you make ethical choices about whether to eat fish and, if so, what fish to eat?
Our two expert speakers will present, followed by a Q&A session, then a delicious and free buffet meal (kindly sponsored by Think.Eat.Drink and Organico with its Fish4Ever brand). The idea of our Food Talks series is to stimulate debate and constructive thinking about the issues that surround the world of food. Please join us!

Food fights and food rights (13th October): Is the right to food a fundamental human right? How do we ensure Governments fulfil their obligations around the right to food? With rising population, pressure on natural resources and the impacts of climate change, are food fights in the future inevitable? Many hundreds of thousands of people in the UK, and many hundreds of millions in the rest of the world, struggle to be able to afford to eat. Shouldn’t we all be fighting – at least figuratively – for everyone to have access to good food?
The psychology of food (8th December): Food fads, obesity, anorexia, allergies, celebrity chefs and more. Food has never been more in the headlines: can the psychological dimension help us understand what’s going on?
