Cambridge Food Security Forum meeting

If you are interested in the food system, and taking action to achieve a sustainable system in Cambridge, please join us for a meeting on Thursday 12 May at 5pm.

The Cambridge Food Security Forum was set up in 2015 to bring together students and post-docs that have an interest in the global food system. Over the last few months, we’ve organised a public discussion on reducing meat consumption, run a seminar series Food: Field to Table?, run a stall at the Science Festival and will soon be holding a joint conference with the Oxford Food Forum.

We are holding this meeting to elect a new committee and to start planning events for the 2016/2017 academic year. Please let us know here if you would like to join us for this meeting. We will settle a location in central Cambridge once we have numbers. If you are a student or an early career post-doc and you would like to be involved in leading the Forum next year please also indicate what roles you might like to take on.

Even if you are not affiliated with the University, do join us at this meeting – it would be fantastic to have your thoughts on projects for next year!

Any questions, or if you are interested but cannot attend the meeting, get in touch at

We look forward to meeting you soon!
