Re-thinking Sustainable Food Systems
20 June 2017, Brussels, Belgium
White Rose Brussels is hosting an event on food security during which eminent scientists from the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York will present their research on sustainable soil management for intensive arable systems, developed in collaboration with farmers, plant breeders and the supply chain.
The keynote speech at the beginning of the meeting will be delivered by Phil Hogan, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development.
The seminar will be an opportunity to learn more about the White Rose Sustainable Agriculture Consortium and international linkages and to join in the discussion on re-thinking sustainable food systems with the academics, Thierry de l’Escaille (European Landowners’ Organisation) and Nicolas Villacorta (Food 2030, DG RTD).
