About the Talk:
This Food Thinkers seminar is an opportunity to discuss the issue of sustainable diets. This simple phrase sometimes seems to cover a vast range of issues shaping how and what we eat, from the environment to ethics, from the labour process to the content of foods. Three researchers will lead off discussion: Dr Tara Garnett of Oxford University who set up the Food Climate Research Network which has been a key global source of data and thinking over the last 11 years; Dr Modi Mwatsama of the UK Health Forum, which has been preparing a new report on how Health Sustainable Diets policy options in the UK; and Prof Tim Lang, of the Centre for Food Policy, whose new book Sustainable Diets (with Pamela Mason) offers an overview of the topic.
