As part of Sustainable Food Month we are hosting a panel discussion asking ‘How can we create a future of sustainable food?’

We are delighted to be joined by four fantastic experts, whose research and interests cover the broad spectrum of topics on ‘food sustainability’. Florence Best, third year geographer, will act as Chair and provide a short introduction to the topic. The panel members will each provide a short statement on the topic, which will be follow by questions from and discussion with the audience.

Please come and join the discussion and feel free to ask questions. We would love to see a few of you there!

Our panel:

Dr David Nally David is senior lecturer in human geography with interests in the history of famine and the role of American philanthropy in shaping global agricultural change. His comments to the forum will focus on the issue of problematization – that is how we discuss, frame and orientate our thoughts and practices on the question of ‘food sustainability’.

Emma Garnett Emma’s PhD research investigates which interventions work to reduce the environmental impact of diet through behaviour change. This project spans the natural and social sciences as well as public health and behavioural psychology. More generally, Emma is interested in understanding how to overcome economic, social and psychological barriers to sustainable resource use.

Bev Sedley Bev is the chair of charity Cambridge Sustainable Food, a network of public, private and community organisations in Cambridge and the surrounding area, working to promote a sustainable local food system. The organisation works on several food projects, including a Sustainable Food Pledge for Businesses which engages local businesses in sustainability commitments.

Kirsten Van Fossen Kirsten comes from an engineering background and is currently a PhD researcher in the Centre for Industrial Sustainability investigating how entrepreneurs build out businesses that contribute to more sustainable food systems. She will speak about how institutions can serve as incubators for small businesses that are passionate about sustainable food.
