Summary

Following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, the 7th one-day City Food Symposium will consider how to develop, design and deliver food policies more effectively in the 21st century. Reflecting on the past trajectory, the symposium will be opened by Professor Tim Lang. As he steps down after 22 years leading the Centre for Food Policy at City he will join Centre alumni and close collaborators to reflect on past achievements, what has been learned and where change is needed.

Considering the future, the afternoon sessions will discuss how we can do food policy better to connect the gap between people and policy. The discussion will focus on how connecting people with policy -- through people-centred approaches, being inclusive of people’s voices and grounding policy design in people’s lived experiences -- could make the critical difference.

This symposium will present opportunities to shape and influence the debate about the future agenda of food policy for sustainable food systems,  better diets and nutrition. It will be chaired by the new Director of the Centre for Food Policy, Professor Corinna Hawkes.

All delegates will be invited to a reception at 5.15pm following the main event.
