The Department of Geography in collaboration with the Brighton and Sussex Universities Food Network (BSUFN) and the Sussex Sustainability Research Programme (SSRP) are organising a weekly seminar series on “Food, Climate and Society”.

This seminar will be on Thursday the 14th of April 2016, from 12:30 to 14:00. All seminars take place in Arts C Global Studies Resource Centre, University of Sussex.
