Event description
Food for thought: how a global pandemic could bring us closer to our food

About this Event

Join Dr. Douglas Bardsley and Linda Crutchett to explore what a food system is and what COVID-19 has taught us about our relationship with food.

Whether you’re an academic, a chef, a farmer or you just like eating food and have an interest in how it gets from the field to your fork, this discussion will offer some unique, relevant and contemporary insights into the processes that have been feeding us for centuries.

Come with questions and ideas for local and global action. Meet new people face to face and learn about what people are doing right here in Adelaide.

Dr Douglas Bardsley is an Associate Professor in Geography, Environment and Population at The University of Adelaide. Doug has been researching responses to risk within agricultural systems for over twenty years in Australia, Nepal, Indonesia, Thailand, Turkey, Switzerland and the European Union. He developed the first integrated assessment of projected climate change impacts for the Adelaide-Mt Lofty Ranges region in 2006, There's a Change on the Way, and has followed that up with a range of local studies, particularly in the McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. He teaches the Food Security course at the University of Adelaide and is particularly interested in ways to evolve agriculture that will meet the needs of society into the future society.

Linda Crutchett has worked with food and nutrition for over 20 years in community, school and workplaces settings. She also worked in SA Health looking at food regulation and developing state-wide nutrition policy with a focus on reducing inequality. Most recently, she joined with the SA Urban Food Network as part of the committee and contracts with The Food Embassy, seeking opportunities for conversation on how we can take time to promote our own wellbeing through growing, cooking and shopping for quality, sustainable food.

Brought to you by the SA Urban Food Network, Adelaide University Geography and Development Society and Ecoversity.
