As an international centre of research excellence, the CCRI seminar series aims to encourage and welcome speakers from a broad range of academic, policy and stakeholder backgrounds. The series, which has become an integral component of CCRI, is open to all, and is a flexible vehicle for the dissemination of research and discussion of policy and practice in a broad range of topics such as agriculture, society, food and environmental issues. It offers the individual an opportunity to present their work in a friendly setting, amongst academics that have a genuine passion and interest in the furthering of knowledge.

We often have international speakers that complement the internal and national academics that regularly present research activities which all contribute to knowledge transfer within the region and amongst our extensive networks.

Local and National Food Policy Initiatives

02/07/2020 at 12:00 - 13:00

In this webinar, we consider the contrasting experiences of initiatives driven by the citizens of a city and the knotty networks of national food policy.

Joy Carey presents about the experience of Bristol in its drive towards reaching a food for life gold status for the City, cementing previous healthy eating and local food projects. Dr Kelly Parsons discusses her research about the complex ways in which food policy is enacted in the UK.

Please note:

  • The webinar will take place on the ‘Zoom‘ platform which will require registration. This is free and we recommend that you do so in advance to avoid disappointment.
