Details

We are living through unprecedented times; the pandemic, Brexit and the climate emergency have highlighted that the need for a sustainable food system is more pressing than ever.


Oxford Brookes University will be hosting a panel debate to mark Earth Day 2021 and explore this years’ theme: ‘restore our planet’. The debate will be live streamed online and consist of a panel discussion and Q&A from the audience. 


The panel will give the audience an insight into sustainable food choices and share practical tips on how we can all make a positive difference by changing what we put on our plate.


We will be joined by:


Fiona Steel, Good Food Oxford Manager 

Good Food Oxford is a network for a better food system in Oxford, working together for healthy, fair, sustainable and tasty food.


Charlie Huson, Forward Food Programme Manager, The Humane Society International

The HSI Forward Food Programme encourages a more plant based diet by explaining the impact of livestock and farming on the environment and public health. 


Rob Wiggans - Executive Head Chef at Gather & Gather

As a market leader in workplace wellbeing, Gather & Gather help customers make informed eating choices through our multi-tiered wellbeing programme. We firmly believe that sustainability isn’t a separate initiative but is something that continually weaves through everything we do.
