You and the planet: food on Thursday 23rd January 2020

World food production grew from 1.84 billion tonnes in 1961 to 4.38 billion tonnes in 2007, yet people still go hungry. How can we feed the world sustainably and equitably while protecting nature? Would eating less red meat make a real difference? What is the future of farming?

Get involved by submitting your question to the panel when reserving a seat online, or come along beforehand to meet researchers from Newcastle University, who will be demonstrating how their work is addressing some of the biggest challenges in our global food system.

This event is part of You and the Planet, a series exploring global environmental issues with world-renowned speakers from science, business, politics and more.

Catch up on the series on YouTube and join the conversation at #YouAndThePlanet.
