Nourish Scotland Conference 2014: Our Common Wealth of Food

The Nourish Scotland conference is taking place October 16-17 at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Nourish say:

Can we use a Common Wealth approach to food? There is enough food for everyone, but people go hungry in Scotland as well as in poorer Commonwealth countries. With increasing inequality, food poverty and diet-related diseases are escalating. Meanwhile, family farmers across the world are being squeezed off the land, and the food system is harming biodiversity and driving climate change, which in turn makes farming dangerously unpredictable.

At this year’s conference we’ll be sharing experiences and ideas with farmers and policymakers from India, Malawi and the Caribbean countries.  What would it take for everyone to eat well without messing up the planet? And how should Scotland play its part?
