Green Drinks Leeds April 2013
Tuesday, 23 April 2013 from 18:00 to 22:00 (BST)
Leeds, United Kingdom
This month, we welcome Dr Chiara Tornaghi to talk about the Urban Food Justice programme. Urban Food Justice is an action research programme investigating and promoting socially & environmentally just food growing across the Leeds City Region.
As the project has reached its half way point, Chiara will present the main outcomes so far and some possible directions for the future. Green Drinks Leeds participants will have the opportunity to evaluate these achievements and suggest directions for the remainder of the project and beyond.
Dr Chiara Tornaghi is a Researcher in the School of Geography at the University of Leeds, and runs the Urban Food Justice programme as well as contributing to the Feed Leeds initiative. She is a Sociologist with interests in Urban Space and Planning and has been involved in public food growing projects in Leeds for a number of years.
