Webinar, 16th October 2020, 14:00-15:00 CEST, 13:00-14:00 BST
The global crisis of 2020 has made every one of us aware that ‘business as usual’ is not an option for future food policy.
How have we arrived at where we are now, in terms of the food we eat, where we source it and the impact it has on our planet? What should a transformed future look like? What actions can we all take, collectively and individually, to bring about a sustainable and fair food system that is better for our health, the environment, society and the economy?
Over 240 participants attended the live session from 36 countries which was moderated by Professor Ole Petersen, Vice-President of Academia Europaea and Director of the Cardiff AE Hub, and hosted by SAPEA. The discussant was Sir Mark Walport, the incoming Chair of the Cardiff Hub Steering Group.
