FUTURE FOODSCAPES: Where will our food come from and will we want to eat it? Please register
PLT, Physics Lecture Theatre, Physics

Whether it is test-tube meat or organic vegetables, hyper-markets or food banks, there are major questions to be asked about the way we grow and distribute food. Will it keep us fed? Is it sustainable? Is it healthy? Is it fair? And who on earth gets to decide?

The Warwick Global Research Priority group on Food and the Institute of Advanced Study have invited three distinguished Visiting Fellows to discuss these questions. Professor Molly Jahn, Dr Jan Willem van der Schans and Patrick Mulvany all bring their long-standing international expertise and experience of the food system, from science to policy and practice, to help stimulate answers. Further information.

Join us at the (PLT) Physics Lecture Theatre (6-7.30pm) at the University of Warwick on Wednesday 5th March 2014 to hear the Fellows each give a short talk on their vision for the future landscape of food, and to ask your questions afterwards.

This is a free, PUBLIC EVENT, all are welcome but please register.
