FOOD TALKS: RESILIENCE BY DESIGN – HOW TO WEATHER CLIMATE CHANGE
Thursday, 20th June 2019 (6.30-8.45pm) | Impact Hub Kings Cross
Food Talks is a quarterly series of events designed to stimulate debate and empower people to take action on critical and contentious food issues. At each #FoodTalks event, you’ll hear from expert speakers, get the opportunity to participate in the discussion on the topic of the night, and be able to eat some delicious buffet food.
The June #FoodTalks tackles how to ‘weather climate change’. Hear from Clare Oxborrow, Friends of the Earth and Kiri Hanks, food and climate justice lead, Oxfam.
“Food, people and climate change are inextricably linked. Climate change has an impact on what, how and where food is produced, and in return our food systems influence soils, landscapes, ecosystems and ultimately climate change. How can we all change our interactions with food and farming for the better – to decarbonise our food systems and help them be resilient for the future? Learning from what is currently happening in this space, we can (re)connect with the fundamental principles of ecological resilience and find ways to incorporate it into our businesses, organisations and daily lives.”
