Meat and Potatoes: Changing Diets for Changing Times?

15 October 2019, 17:30 - 18:45

Sainsbury Laboratory , Auditorium, 47 Bateman Street , CB2 1LR

Good or bad, sustainable or not? It takes multiple perspectives to capture the scientific, cultural, and political reasons why we eat the way we do, and what future diets might look like. Could different perspectives help to change our views and habits?

Cambridge researchers with different expertise and viewpoints will discuss the value and importance of specific foods and food technologies, from canning and refrigeration, to meat and potatoes. Bring your own ideas and questions: we invite you to join the conversations!

This is a Cambridge Global Food Security IRC and Centre for Global Knowledge Studies (gloknos) event, supported by the EIT Food #AnnualFoodAgenda project.

Bookings for this event will be taken by the University of Cambridge Festival of Science team- you can reserve a space online now.
