Event description
Food in the future, where is it all heading? It's fundamental to our existence but how can we 'do food right'? We'll hear from the experts

About this Event

We've moved on from thinking we can solve all our problems by changing our energy sources. Food is, of course, vital to our existence and the way we produce, process and transport it have a massive impact.

Dr Monika Zurek has been working on food systems, environment and development interactions in research and international organizations for more than 15 years.

Monika is involved in, and leads on, a number of projects within the Food Systems Group at the Environmental Change Institute . She also sits on the coordination team of the UK's cross-government Global Food Security Programme on the Resilience of the UK Food System .

So who better to give us the inside story of food, what's happening, reasons to worry but also for hope and how we can have an impact?

We'll also be hearing from some people and organisations who are getting stuck in locally. First to confirm is Good Food Oxford, who do some fantastic work locally, so you won't be left feeling dismayed but you'll see how we can make a difference in Oxford.

There'll be plenty of time to ask questions, to talk and to listen to each other.

If this isn't your area of expertise, come along and learn. If it is, come along and share your thoughts.

We are thrilled to be hosted again by the School of Geography, at the Oxford University Centre for the Environment, Environmental Change Institute, right in the centre of Oxford

Walking distance from the town centre and train station.

Lots of cycle parking available.

Disabled Parking Only.
