The FoodPrinting Oxford report (2013) developed a methodology to quantify for the first time the environmental impacts and dependencies of food consumption in Oxford in terms of land, water and energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions. In addition it evaluated options for taking action at city level and identified groups of organisations and businesses able to act in different areas. Included in this options appraisal was an assessment of the productive capacity around Oxford geographical city-region. A year later, a new organisation, Good Food Oxford, took shape develop the citys capacity to coordinate effective food sustainability activities. We will report on the approach that has been taken and how new cross-sector collaborations have started to build on the FoodPrinting report to take on the complex challenge of behaviour change.
The talk will be 30-45 minutes, followed by a Q&A session and then a short wine reception.
