From trade-offs to co-benefits in times of crisis: finding positive solutions to multiple food systems challenges
Registration for the Food Policy Symposium 2023 is now closed.
We will not be operating a waiting list as we have overbooked to allow for non-attendees.
If you would like to be added to the mailing list for future Food Policy events, please sign up here.
The temptation in times of crisis is to focus only on addressing immediate needs. While short term remedies are necessary, the complex interplay of factors that give rise to crises and shocks require systemic solutions. Tackling systemic causes is more important now than ever, during times of deep food crisis in the UK and globally.
The 2023 City Food Policy Symposium will apply systems thinking – especially co-benefits and trade-offs – to consider the solutions needed to counter what has been called the permacrisis. This approach examines the overlapping crises of climate, biodiversity, food insecurity, malnutrition, diet-related ill-health, people's livelihoods, and inequality.
- consider how to consciously craft policy within a food systems approach
- co-create solutions to overlapping crisis with experts
- identify the ways to build co-benefits into existing initiatives, and
- think critically about trade-offs and transitions.
Attendance at City events is subject to our terms and conditions.
