Living Differently to Make a Sustainable Scotland

Barbara Stütz, the Policy Officer for Nourish Scotland, will join us to explain how we can create a Scotland with a healthier, wealthier, greener, smarter and fairer food system;

Our globalised food system has many adverse effects on everything from the environment, people’s health to local economies and even culture. Shortening supply chains by producing food more locally and organically is important if we are to address our societal and environmental crises. Each time we shop we decide what sort of economy we support. Admittedly it is not simply a question of choosing different products, but a question of food culture. Where initiatives for local and sustainable food have emerged, and there are many, they have largely been driven by citizens through grassroots initiatives. Join us for an evening discussion on the problems of the global food system and find out in what ways you individually, or your community or faith congregation as a whole, can be part of a positive change.

How can we make a more sustainable food system in Scotland? To find the answer to this question come along to our next civic café which will be followed by our monthly community meal.
