Event Details

Join chair Lucy Siegle, and our panel of speakers, including Councillor Asher Craig, deputy mayor, Bristol City Council; Guardian columnist and author of Eating for Pleasure, People & Planet, Tom Hunt; Tim Lang, professor of food policy at City University; and Carolyn Steel, author of Sitopia: How Food Can Save the World, as they discuss the issues we face on the environmental impact of our food consumption and production.

Roughly one fifth of the UK’s fresh food imports come from areas threatened with climate chaos, sourced under circumstances which are directly driving deforestation, drought and wealth inequality. A report has shown reducing our meat and dairy consumption will have a huge positive impact on the environment, but is it really as simple as that?

In a country with poorly produced food but high importing standards, are environmentally friendly production and supply lines possible? As we cast our lenses onto the side effects of food production, how can we be sure we are eating ethically? And what role will technology or scientific advances have on food production in the future?

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.

Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email guardianlive.events@theguardian.com
