Event Details

Cities all around the world are starting to look at how they can reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions that are contributing to climate change, and how some of this can be through food system changes. The event will include learning and best practice from our Partner Cities in the EU URBACT ‘Sustainable Food in Urban Communities’ network and how this can further inspire and influence our already dynamic food scene in Bristol.

Following on from last year’s successful Food Gathering in November 2013, this event will provide plenty of time for networking and discussing some of the most pressing issues in our current food system.

Bristol Food Policy Council

In response to Bristol's grassroots food community dynamism and in the recognition of how vulnerable the food system in the city is to climate change and resource shortages the Food Policy Council was proposed to help support and further develop the sector. It was established in May 2011 and consists of people representing the major sectors involved in the food system in the city.
