In partnership with Nourish Scotland, we are excited to announce that we are bringing the True Cost Accounting debate to Edinburgh on Wednesday 4th June.
The relentless drive for cheap food has created a system that damages our valuable ecosystems, on which future productivity depends. The damage caused is not factored into the price we pay for food, but is instead passed onto the general public and future generations. If we think the price of sustainable food is high today, it’s a bargain compared to the price of unsustainable food tomorrow.
This one day conference will bring together food producers, researchers, policy makers and NGOs to share knowledge about the cost-impacts of our current food system, and to share ideas about how food policy in Scotland could bring sustainable food production and consumption into the mainstream.
Speakers include Patrick Holden, Chief Executive of the Sustainable Food Trust, Professor Mark Sutton, lead author of the European Nitrogen Assessment, Simon Crichton from Triodos Bank and Jo Hunt, from Knockfarrel Organics. The event will be chaired by Guardian journalist, Alex Renton.
Early bird and student discount tickets are now available.
