Abstract

At this Event in London, Dr Barbara Haesler from LCIRAH, Dr Claire Marris and Prof Tim Lang from the Centre for Food Policy at City University London will tell us about their experiences of being involved in informing and researching interventions to shape the food system. The audience then will have the opportunity to work in multidisciplinary groups and critically engage with different food system governance initiatives (i.e. initiatives that seek to change or reform the wider food system in some way, based on case studies). Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet for the group activity. A prize will be offered to the winning group and the session will be followed by an informal drinks and nibbles reception.

There will be simultaneous events happening across the country in IFSTAL's partner institutions: Oxford University, Reading University and Warwick University. In London, this event will be hosted by City University London and LCIRAH (LSHTM, RVC, SOAS).
