With political windows opening for national food policies in the UK and globally, the 2019 City Food Policy Symposium will explore what lessons have been learned about their development and delivery and the benefits and pitfalls of taking an inclusive and integrated approach.

• Hear presentations about recent efforts in the UK and around the world to develop and deliver integrated approaches to food policy at the national and city level.
• In smaller workshop groups, work with others using methods which foster shared learning to develop new insights to inform the development and delivery of national food policies
• Hear the views of a high-level panel of what a national food policy for England should look like
