BSUFN colleagues at the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (Coventry University) and the Food Research Collaboration are hosting an event on food issues and the EU referendum.
Bon appétit? A pop-up citizens’ jury on the future of food – in or out of Europe?
10-5PM – 12TH MAY 2016
THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE, 30 ST PETER’S STREET, London, N1 8JT
Whether it’s the straight banana Euromyth, the high price of healthy food or rising suicide rates among farmers – the ‘in’ or ‘out’ debate touches on controversial issues relating to the future of food. We are hosting a public jury which will put the issues ‘on trial’ during a one day event that will also be webcast live, bringing new voices to the referendum campaign. Eight expert witnesses including Joan Walley (ex-MP and former chair of the Environmental Audit Committee of the House of Commons), Prof. Tim Lang (City University) and Guy Watson (Riverford).

BSUFN member Professor Erik Millstone (Science Policy Research Unit, University of Sussex) will be giving evidence as an expert witness during this event.
