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 series will explore the multiple challenges that the global food system is facing: feeding more people healthy food while limiting environmental and social impacts.
This week Dr Tara Garnett (Food Climate Research Network, Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food, University of Oxford) will be giving a seminar titled ‘Food and the sustainable healthy diets question‘. This seminar will be on Thursday the 21st of April 2016, from 12:30 to 14:00. All seminars take place in Arts C Global Studies Resource Centre, University of Sussex.
Tara Garnett founded the Food Climate Research Network based at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford. She has done much research on the contribution of food systems to global emissions of greenhouse gases and the consequences of project future food scenarios.
