Equality: Food, Water & Politics (13 – 15 Jan 2021)

Part Three of LSBU’s Sustainability & Climate Action Event Series will focus on the above themes. All of which are individual issues but, at the same time, undeniably connected. The intersections of gender, race, climate, poverty and refugees with the politicisation of equal access to clean and safe water, sanitation and achieving food security are both local & global areas for concern in sustainability and climate action. With an increase in floods and droughts, the changing weather systems increase the threats to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.

Policies and laws have the power to address the global challenges we currently face on equal access to food and water worldwide but true equality also requires a huge amount of work to deal with the humanitarian issues the world is facing right now, particularly in light of the Black Lives Matter movement and the refugee crisis. What creative solutions can drive fairer access to food and how can climate change and globalisation impact our psychological behaviour towards food, diets and our physical health? What more needs to be done to move towards a greener AND fairer world for everyone?

Just with Parts One and Two of this event series, we’ll hear from LSBU’s own leaders and experts in these fields, along with a host of external influential professionals, who will showcase their work, experience and expertise in these fields as they demonstrate their commitment to tackling the major issues in sustainability and climate change.
