Climate change and growing inequality are two of the biggest issues shaping our food system and exacerbated by it. This event, chaired by the Landworkers Alliance, with speakers from Nourish, Sustain, Landworkers Alliance and Reading-based project Growing Solidarity, will explore both community-level initiatives and national-level advocacy ensuring food fit for the planet is a right for all. We will discuss the false dichotomy of having to choose affordable food vs sustainable and ethical food, and look at upcoming opportunities to make access to climate-friendly food everyone’s business.

This event is part of the 12-day event series, Recipes for Resilience, hosted by Nourish Scotland. Learn more here.
