Event description
Now is the time to ask questions about where food comes from and the production processes involved before it lands on your plate.

About this event

in partnership with The Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen

According to Oxfam, most people will experience climate change through the impact on:

  • their food;
  • what we eat;
  • the price we pay;
  • and the availability and choice on supermarket shelves.

Now is the time to ask questions about where food comes from and the production processes involved before it lands on your plate.

Join the panel to discover how climate change will affect your weekly shop and the practical changes you can make to minimise your carbon footprint - from re-thinking food miles to innovative urban farming, or embracing new forms of bug foods.

Chair: Paul O'Kane MSP, Health, Social Care and Sport Committee

Panellists:

Professor Sarah Bridle, University of York, author of Food and Climate Change – without the hot air

Professor Jennie Macdiarmid, Rowett Institute, University of Aberdeen

Abi Mordin, Glasgow City Food Plan

Pete Ritchie, Nourish Scotland

Organiser of Cut your food’s carbon footprint

This is the 17th year that the Scottish Parliament has hosted The Festival of Politics.

Taking place over five days, our free online panel sessions allow you to have your say and debate if the world has gone past its tipping point or if it can be saved through science, technology and innovative action. Themed around the United Nations’ Sustainable Goals, we will also explore the impact of climate on other issues such as poverty and inequality.

Book your free tickets now and find out more about Scotland’s place in tackling the world’s climate crisis as it prepares to host global leaders for the COP26 conference.
