Event description

Description

Come along to the introductory talk for the Story of Sustainable Food led by Professor Colin Osborne, Associate Director of The Grantham Centre and Professor of Plant Biology in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield. Food is at the heart of sustainability. We all need to eat, but modern food production damages the environment for future generations. In this talk, Professor Osborne will introduce the big issues in this area. How is the global demand for food changing as the population grows and more people go to live in cities? How do modern food production and consumption patterns harm the environment? Why is meat a sustainability issue? And how can everyone have enough to eat, without costing the Earth?

Remember, students can get HEAR accreditation for attending 5 talks and Green Impact teams can cross off relevant toolkit actions.
