The Future of Food In or Out of Europe – Let the Citizens’ Jury Decide

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). For  further details see: peoplesknowledge.org

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

You can register to attend the event for free and apply to be on the jury here.
