DescriptionOn March 24th, at Discovery Point in Dundee, a group of around 100 people from across Tayside and beyond, met to discuss the crucial issue of how we feed our communities through the climate crisis.
Participants were drawn from across the breadth of the sector, including senior figures in the food and drink industry, politicians, civil servants, leaders of community garden and food bank initiatives, rural skills teachers, farmers and leading academics from Dundee’s universities and the James Hutton Institute. The discussions of the day began the work of identifying what changes need to be made to transform Tayside’s food system in the light of the climate and biodiversity crises.
Across the world, governments, businesses and communities are recognising that a global transformation is needed this decade in our food systems to deliver climate change mitigation and adaptation, safeguard biological diversity, improve food security and ensure and create more inclusive and resilient food economies that deliver healthier diets for all.
