Inaugural lecture: Thought for Food - Food for Thought?

Inaugural lecture by Professor Geoff Simm, Professor of Global Agriculture and Food Security

Feeding the world's growing population well - while protecting the natural systems on which we all depend - is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Around a third of the global population is affected by one or more forms of malnutrition – be that hunger, obesity or micronutrient deficiency.

Achieving sustainable, healthy diets underpins many of the Sustainable Development Goals – especially those concerned with hunger, poverty, health, gender equality, responsible consumption and production, and climate action.

In this lecture, Geoff will outline the challenges and potential solutions, including the scientific, policy and educational interventions that are most likely to achieve impact and change.

This lecture will be followed by a reception in the area outside of the auditorium.

This lecture is free and open to all.
