Join us to discuss how food can help us address climate emergency and injustice. Explore practical actions we can take with expert insight.

About this event

Our #FoodTalks series is now in its 7th year. In this online event, we will explore how we can use food as a way of uniting us to overcome injustices, including the climate crisis. Industrial food systems are at the heart of societal divisions and too often store up problems for the long-term.

Join us to consider how food can help us address climate emergency and injustice. What practical actions can we take - as individuals, in the organisations we’re involved in, and as part of a broader movement for fair food systems and a just world? Hear insights from our expert speakers and share your own questions and views.

We are delighted that our speakers include:

  • Raj Patel, film-maker (writer and co-director of ‘The Ants & The Grasshopper’), academic and author or co-author of books including Stuffed and Starved: Markets, Power and the Hidden Battle for the World's Food System and A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the Planet (and described as “the rock star of social justice writing”);
  • Harriet Lamb, CEO of Ashden, climate solutions in action, plus co-author of ‘From Anger to Action’ (which tells the stories of the citizens’ movements tackling the biggest global challenges of our times); former Chief Executive of the Fairtrade Foundation.
  • Emily Bohobo N'Dombaxe Dola, Storytelling Director, Youth4Nature, with a particular focus on policy and advocacy issues around livelihoods and food systems, adaptation and resilience, and intersectionality and just transition.

Sign-up today! You can also find all the details on this and our past Talks in our brand new Food Talks website!

#FoodTalks is brought to you by a partnership of the Food Ethics Council, Impact Hub Kings Cross, Organico, and London Food Link, part of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming.

There is an optional donation to this event. This will help cover costs and time for the event, but we still want to be accessible to everyone, so only give if you can! To thank you for your donations, one of the #FoodTalks partners Organico will be offering a food hamper including some of their delicious, organic and Mediterranean products worth £70.

We look forward to seeing you at #FoodTalks!
