Landworkers Alliance - Building better food systems
29 September 2022, Starts: 09:00, Ends: 17:00
Wednesday 28 & Thursday 29 September 9.00 - 5.00 online
The Landworkers Alliance is hosting a conference on building better foodsystems based on short and resilient supply chains. The free event in Manchester and online (Wednesday only), aims to bring together food and farming businesses, policy makers, researchers, and social justice movements tolook at how to realise the full potential of local and resilient foodsystems.
The environmental, social and economic benefits of local and short supply chains are well recognised, but currently only supply a fraction of food produced and consumed in the UK. This needs to change.
Calling food producers, processors, distributors, academics, policy-makers and food justice activists! Join us at the ‘Building Better Food Systems’ conference and be part of the movement for resilient short supply chains.
This free two-day conference brings together food and farming businesses, policy makers, researchers, and social justice movements to look at how to realise the full potential of local and resilient food systems.
During the course of the conference, together we will identify opportunities and challenges, and develop action plans to address them.
The Building Better Food Systems Conference is organised by the Landworkers’ Alliance in collaboration with Coventry University, and is funded by the COACH project.
This conference is part of a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101000918
