York Citizen Food Assembly
November 8, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pmFree
The IKnowFood programme (funded by the Global Food Security programme) working with YESI (York Environmental Sustainability Institute) is holding the ‘York Citizen Food Assembly’ to raise awareness and to get your views on the future of the UK food system. We will submit our findings to the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to help inform food policy.
On Friday pop in to the main event for a series of presentations from University of York academics, policymakers, local industry and charities about their work in this area. Whilst you are there browse the exhibition showcasing projects at York and chat to the experts themselves. Have your say during our series of interactive sessions and speak to fellow attendees over a sustainable lunch.
This is a great opportunity for the general public, businesses, and the public sector to explore food systems research at York and to have a real impact on future policy.
NOTE: We would like to have a variety of audience members. As a result you will see that we have set up a range of ticket types.
