Event Details

Part one of a three part dialogue series focussing on key elements of climate justice and exploring solutions that we can all be part of.

Interfaith Glasgow in partnership with Nourish Scotland invite you to:

Climate Justice is Food Justice

Food unites. It is both a basic human need and something that can bring meaning and joy to our lives, particularly when it is shared together. But the food that we are eating and the way it is produced causes a third of total greenhouse gas emissions, which is driving climate change. If the global food industry was a country, it would be the third biggest emitter of greenhouse gases on the planet. Moreover, most of the damage to biodiversity is caused by the food system. It is also driving inequality and poverty, particularly in the global south – but also here in Scotland, with low wages and harsh working conditions endemic globally both among small producers and in other parts of the supply chain and with corporations controlling most of our crops.

In this first event of a 3-part series exploring various aspects of Climate Justice – we consider this enormous piece of the puzzle. We can’t tackle climate change without tackling the food system, and, as we’ll see, food intersects with lots of other issues too.

Join us to hear from expert speakers with real life experience from the UK, South Africa and India – they will explain the complex global food system and how we connect with it, and point toward the solutions that we can all be a part of.
