Knowledge for better food systems

Food Talks event on the distribution of power in the food system, Dec 5 2017, London, UK

The next event in the Food Talks series, ‘Power: Is the future of our food in too few hands?’, takes place on Tuesday 5th December 2017 in London.

Key questions that will be explored include:

  • How are different types of power - political, economic, moral influence, control of resources – distributed in the food system, and how can we better understand power relations?
  • If power concentration exists and is undesirable, what are possible fair ways to redistribute that power and/ or to prevent further power concentration?
  • Where power is concentrated, under what circumstances can it be harnessed for good?
  • How can we give more ‘power to the people’? How can we ‘empower’ people?
  • How can we imagine power better in the food system?

Speakers for this event are Sara Roversi (Co-founder of You Can Group and the Future Food Institute) and Geoff Tansey (writer, author, curator of the Food Systems Academy and member of the Food Ethics Council). The discussion will be chaired by Ben Reynolds, deputy chief executive of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming.
