Feeding the Earth: building and sustaining food systems for the good of all
Climate change, population growth, the rising cost of living, animal welfare, supply chain shortages, diet and health …the list of challenges around ‘food’ seems endless. And, with the current conflict in Ukraine bringing issues of global food security into sharp focus yet again, the problems can seem overwhelming. But there is much we can do as believers and there has never been a better time to consider ‘food’ from a Christian perspective in order to inform our prayers, our lifestyles, our influence …and our votes.
In a new four-part Thinking Faith Network series of talks called Feeding the Earth: building and sustaining food systems for the good of all an international panel of researchers will speak on their varied work in this area and their determination to ‘use research to do good for all’. Led by our Faith in Scholarship Director, Dr Richard Gunton, their talks will be aimed at a general audience, with two speakers per session and opportunity for discussion. The remainder of this unique daytime programme will take place via Zoom 1200-1400 on Fridays, 27th May and 3rd, 10th June.
Please share widely! These events will be free to students, £5 per seminar to everyone else.Visit www.thinkfaith.net for speaker and topic information and to book.
