The Great Debate: Engineering better food systems
12/03/2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Today’s global food system uses a lot of resources: fuel and fossil-derived fertilisers on the farm, fuel for transport, plastics for packaging and electricity for refrigeration with wastage at each stage. What can engineering do to improve sustainability of food production and distribution as the world population increases? There will be four short talks on the topics set out below followed by an opportunity for the audience to raise questions and views to a panel consisting of the four speakers.
