Educate, inspire, enthuse, unite.
The Hungry for Change forum has been created to provide information and allow for a discussion to take place between Catering and environmental professionals from further and higher education institutes. Dr Helen Harwatt will introduce speakers who will talk through environmental impacts of food production, biodiversity, sustainable diets and food trends in particular with a plant based culinary workshop. Dr Helen will also be sharing a calculator and assessment tool so that catering sites can communicate sustainability with customers and measure the environmental impact of menu changes.
The morning session will cover the scientific evidence, finishing with an insight into how the foodscape influences our landscape, including some case studies in the UK of what happens when the damage is reserved. The biodiversity and landscape element is particularly powerful in empowering culinary and environmental professionals in the added value and large impact of their efforts in changing menus. This aspect is also a relatively unknown impact of the food system and will therefore provide new insights for attendees.
The afternoon sessions will be focussed on practical examples and case studies. Tools and resources that are available to UK institutes will be presented.
The goal is for participants to leave full of enthusiasm and feeling supported in their efforts. They will also work together within their institute across catering and environment.
A menu of fully vegan lunch, drinks and snacks will be provided throughout the day.
