DRIFT Food Futures: New directions for food system research

This is an online event: details can be found at https://drift.eur.nl/nl/agenda/drift-food-futures-event/

Against a backdrop of massive humanitarian, social and ecological strain, the transformation of agri-food systems has considerable social momentum. This event is an interactive, online follow-up on the article “Beyond food for thought…“, which identifies gaps in agri-food systems debates and outlines four avenues for food transitions research in next decade. (And an unofficial sequel to the 31 May #JustSustainabilityTransitions event “How to get justice on the menu in urban food futures?“)

So join three of the article’s authors, and two special guests, to discover the potential of various research fields coming together to contribute to future and just food systems. Through discussion of two of the four avenues for future food transitions research, we also hope to broaden food futures research and action beyond the (so far) standard considerations. We are delighted to co-organise this event with the Environmental Change Institute of the University of Oxford.
