Location: Room C309, Tait Building, City University London

Please join us for the 2nd 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 an introduction to Systems Thinking, the history and theory behind its development and how we might apply it to the 'wicked problems' facing food systems.

Dr Harley Pope of IFSTAL at Reading University will be giving the lecture (live streamed from Reading): "What is systems thinking and how might we use it to confront the 'wicked problem(s)' of food?".  Afterwards we will have our own local discussion with the audience led by a panel of experts giving you the opportunity to meet other colleagues studying and working on food-related topics followed by a 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). If you would like to attend the lecture at any of the other IFSTAL locations please visit our website for more information.
