The world needs a radically different global food system which works with nature and provides everybody with access to safe and nutritious food.
Researchers at the Global Food and Environment Institute at the University of Leeds are developing solutions that will help bring about transformative change and create a food system which is socially-just, climate-smart and able to adapt to enhance the future sustainability and habitability of our planet.
Mapping the Leeds Urban Food System: Professor Caroline Orfila, School of Food Science and Nutrition
Leeds has a vibrant and diverse food culture, and a new multi-disciplinary project at the University is researching how the physical, biological and cultural fabric of the city influences the food habits, health and wellbeing of its citizens. The project is also exploring the resilience of the city’s food supply in the context of the climate emergency, and how research at the University can help develop a vision for a resilient and healthy future for Leeds.
This event takes place during our Big Get Together month when alumni around the world will be championing sustainability and showing their support for the University’s commitment to creating a sustainable future.
