How ‘lived experience’ could change food culture

An event at the Centre for Food Policy - who are a member of Sustain - uses 20 years of experience of the everyday food habits of children and adults to make a true change to our food culture.

The talk is with Professor Wendy Wills; sociologist, nutritionist and Professor of Food and Public Health at the University of Hertfordshire.

Professor Wills will contemplate the types of framework that can incorporate lived experience and envisage ‘who needs to do what’ if contemporary tales of obesity, hunger or malnutrition can truly be used beyond driving media headlines. She will link case studies from people who have participated in her research with theoretical frameworks about the importance of embedded routines and some cutting edge thinking from the field of public health.


Wednesday 24 October 5.30pm - 7pm

Lecture Theatre AG21, College Building

City, University of London

Wendy's talk will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the audience.


The seminar is free to attend but tickets are allocated on a first come first served basis so please register to secure your space.
