Making Glasgow a Sustainable Food City

Tuesday, 2nd May 2017, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Registration from 1:30 pm

The event will address the societal issues of health and food provision in Scotland and how these issues are inexplicably linked to climate change.

Bringing together representatives from industry, NGOs and the higher education sector, the event will explore how Scotland can work towards a more sustainable, fairer food system, from both a Scotland-wide and as well as a more local, Glasgow-based perspective. The event will also review the role of universities in promoting sustainable and ethical production and consumption of food.

Relevant information includes the Nourish Scotland Good Food Nation Bill.

Registration and refreshments will be available from 1.30pm.
