IFSTAL Lecture 4 London event

5.00pm

Public

Please join us for the 4th Lecture in the Innovative Food Systems Teaching and Learning (IFSTAL) programme. IFSTAL is a collaborative, interdisciplinary, cross-university food systems training programme for postgraduate students, linking with the work place to improve future human, animal and environmental health.

This event will offer you the chance to explore the outcomes associated with food systems - looking particularly at food security, the environment and the economy.

Dr Rosemary Collier from University of Warwick will be giving the lecture (live streamed from Warwick) "Explorations in Food System Outcomes: food security, the environment and economy". The lecture will address issues of food security/insecurity, health and welfare outcomes, the environmental impacts of food system activities, the cultural world around food, profit, employment and livelihoods coming from food.

Outcomes are linked in various ways, and working to alter one outcome will have knock-on implications for others. Afterwards we will have our own local discussion with the audience led by a panel of experts including Dr Barbara Haesler from LCIRAH, Sergio Schneider, Professor of Rural Sociology and Tim Lang, Professor of Food Policy, City University London, giving you the opportunity to meet other colleagues studying and working on food-related topics.

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

If you would like to attend the lecture at any of the other IFSTAL locations please visit their website for more information.
