A Recipe for A Net Zero Food System
Join us for a conversation between key organisations working on sustainable food systems!
This event will highlight the priority areas where change can contribute to a net zero future of food, such as tackling waste in the current food system and switching to healthy sustainable diets.
Presentations will be followed by an interactive discussion with the panelists and audience, addressing issues such as: What are the key priorities for a net zero future? What can we learn from cities around the world? How will we target both sustainability and food poverty?
