Like many areas across the world, Northern Ireland faces questions and challenges related to food waste, sustainability and the environment.
How do we innovate our patterns of consumption so that we can, not only protect and sustain the environment, but also tackle and challenge the growing issue of food poverty? How do we maintain these patterns over the next fifty years? How can we move from small allotments to country-wide sustainability?
The session, hosted by SIX, will explore the way in which we can better maximise the food that we would ordinarily waste and protect our environment so that we can create a more sustainable, viable food future.
The National Trust NI, amongst other projects, aim to protect, sustain and reconnect us to our local environment.
Belfast Food Network aim to promote a thriving food economy in Belfast, reducing food inequalities whilst promoting healthy, fresh, local, seasonal and sustainable produce.
Based in Athens, Options Food Lab connect different worlds, cultures and people through collaboration, food and eating.

TheFestival brings together the 'unusual suspects' from across Northern Ireland and the world, people who wouldn't normally cross paths, to explore how we can work together in new and different ways to create real social change.
