Event Description

You are invited to attend our ‘Nourishing Communities Food Seminar’ 10 – 4pm on 27th April in Letham Village Hall, Letham, Fife.

The aim of this seminar is to directly contribute to a community engagement strategy by which Local Authorities (and Fife Council in particular) can help Communities to develop sustainable food systems.

The day will include: community and local authority presentations, informal discussion and networking, a chance for participants to present their initiatives/ ideas, and space to collectively begin to develop a transformative food system for Fife.

Issues to be addressed include:

· Can communities embed and expand community supported agriculture?

· Should communities, councils, and other institutions use food life cycle analysis to include all costs and benefits in food production, consumption and procurement?

· Is it possible to rebuild the local - including skilled work, social networks and community cohesion - in the light of our global responsibilities?

· How can we individually change our behaviour to enact our food ideals?

This is the third in our series of four seminars focused on enabling Fife Council to support commuities to develop sustainable energy, transport, food and communities. We would welcome your participation. There is no participant cost for this seminar but registration is essential. If you are interested in attending, please contact justin.kenrick@st-andrews.ac.uk by 18th April.
