FOOD TO THE RESCUE? How can food help address climate change?

Jun 17th
18:00 - 19:30

Our #FoodTalks series is now in its 7th year. In this online event, we will explore how we can use food as a way of uniting us to overcome injustices, including the climate crisis. Industrial food systems are at the heart of societal divisions and too often store up problems for the long-term.

Join us to consider how food can help us address climate emergency and injustice. What practical actions can we take – as individuals, in the organisations we’re involved in, and as part of a broader movement for fair food systems and a just world? Hear insights from our expert speakers and share your own questions and views.

We are delighted that our speakers include:

  • Raj Patel, film-maker (writer and co-director of ‘The Ants & The Grasshopper’), academic and author or co-author of books including Stuffed and Starved: Markets, Power and the Hidden Battle for the World’s Food System and A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the Planet (and described as “the rock star of social justice writing”);
  • Harriet Lamb, CEO of Ashden, climate solutions in action, plus co-author of ‘From Anger to Action’ (which tells the stories of the citizens’ movements tackling the biggest global challenges of our times); former Chief Executive of the Fairtrade Foundation.
  • Emily Bohobo N’Dombaxe Dola, Storytelling Director, Youth4Nature, with a particular focus on policy and advocacy issues around livelihoods and food systems, adaptation and resilience, and intersectionality and just transition.
