About this event
The 27th talk of the APS talks series, 'Climate Action & Responsible Consumption: The hidden costs of our food choices', will be presented by Ed Winters at 18:30 on 26 January 2023.
To keep up with the demand for animal products without compromising the environment, we need drastic changes in our food systems. Educator, public speaker, author, and filmmaker Ed Winters will tackle the complexities of this topic and challenge the view that we are solely consumers. Instead, the argument will be made that we have to become food citizens, aware of the origin of our foods and the damage caused by our everyday choices. Drawing on the latest science and most up-to-date research, this talk will analyse the impact our food choices have and ask the question, what will the future of food look like?
