Afternoon Workshop: Food, Farming & Health in a New Scotland

On Monday 7 March the Scottish Food Coalition will Launch PLENTY, its narrative document calling for transformative changes in Scotland's food system in the coming Scottish parliamentary term. The CSPP is a supporter of the coalition. 


Monday the 7th of March, 14:00 -16:30, followed by drinks
UNISON HOUSE, 14 West Campbell Street, GLASGOW G2 6RX

You are warmly invited to join organisations and stakeholders involved in issues related to the food, farming, environmental and health sectors for an afternoon workshop on the 7th of March, focused on the following questions:

What would a socially and environmentally just food system look like?
What would we want to see in a Food, Farming and Health Act for Scotland?
How can we work together more effectively in the time ahead?

Whether you’ve participated in the coalition or are just interested in finding out more and contributing some ideas, this workshop will be a chance to learn from each other’s wide range of perspectives and experiences, and to explore how together we can catalyse real change in how we do food in Scotland.

We’ll hear from various participants in the coalition what transformative change in the food system might look like, followed by small-group work to help us join the dots between the different issues that matter to us - they are all urgent, and all related. We’ll then make a start at shaping up our policy recommendation and asks. We’ll also be launching PLENTY, the vision document we’ve been writing collectively over the past months.

After the workshop, you’re welcome to join us for drinks at The Old Hairdressers bar around the corner on Renfield Lane.
