Food Talks - June 2017

Food Talks - June 2017

The second event in the 2017 Food Talks series is WELLBEING - How can we eat and live well in the future? and takes place on 29th June 2017 at the Impact Hub King’s Cross.

What, how much and with whom we eat affects how we feel.

Our lifestyles affect our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Increasingly sedentary lifestyles, together with poor diets and overeating, have contributed to worrying levels of obesity in the UK and many other countries around the world.

Key questions to be explored will include:

  • How can the tide of obesity be turned?
  • How can active, healthy lifestyles and good food choices be encouraged or incentivised, particularly amongst young people?
  • How can eating and living well prevent early onset of many physical and mental health conditions?
  • How can we imagine better food and active lifestyles in the future?

The expert speakers for the event are:

  • Joanna Lewis – Strategy and Policy Director, Food for Life – at the Soil Association
  • Jane Ogden – Professor in Health Psychology, University of Surrey and author of several books

The discussion will be chaired by Dan Crossley, Executive Director of the Food Ethics Council. Our two expert speakers will present, followed by a Q&A session, then a delicious and free buffet meal (sponsored by us and Organico). The idea of our Food Talks series is to stimulate debate and constructive thinking about the issues that surround the world of food. Please join us!
