Join us for an evening of debate, celebration, and the opportunity to meet some of the UK’s leading sustainable food, farming and fishing organisations and initiatives, on Thursday 23rd November.
The title of our gathering and public debate will be: Food and farming – pay and poverty: How can the food system ensure decent livelihoods and decent food for all, from producers to citizens?
7pm, Thursday 23rd November: book your ticket now.
We are excited to welcome Felicity Lawrence, investigative journalist and author, as our guest speaker. She is a special correspondent for The Guardian newspaper and author of the bestselling exposés of the food industry, Not on the Label and Eat Your Heart Out. Felicity will reflect on her experiences, and what she thinks should change to improve pay and working conditions in the food industry. A panel of Sustain members from across the range of issues that the alliance covers will be invited to give considered responses, followed by audience questions and lively debate.
The event will start at 7pm (for Sustain members, our AGM will start promptly at 6pm in the same venue), on Thursday 23rd November 2017 at the Canal Museum just north of King's Cross station. Talks will finish around 8.30pm, after which there will be an opportunity to meet and mingle with attendees over sustainable drinks and nibbles.
Booking essential - hope to see you there!
