About Sourcing Healthy Food as the World Changes

Global demand for food continues to grow and we are more concerned than ever that food should be safe and nutritious. Climate change predictions highlight serious challenges for future food production, but in the meantime agriculture makes a significant contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. Lancaster University's Prof Bill Davies explores the hard decisions we need to make and how plant science provides opportunities to create the kind of world we want to live in.

Presented by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Ages 14+

Venue: Lecture Theatre, Royal Botanic Garden
