27th May 2016

On 23 – 24 June 2016, the Cambridge Conference on Global Food Security will be taking place at the David Attenborough Building, hosted by the University of Cambridge Global Food Security Initiative in association with the Cambridge Conservation Initiative & the Cambridge Centre of Development Studies.

The Conference will explore how to translate knowledge into action to secure future food supply, sustainability and equality. The two-day conference will cover the following:

  • Thursday (23 June, 12.30 – 19.30) will be given to scene-setting on the challenges of our changing world and the current course of research activity that seeks to meet them.
  • Friday (24 June, 08.30 – 19.00) will be devoted to more focused presentation and discussion of key areas within two parallel streams:
    – Food Security, Sustainability and Conservation (co-organised with the Cambridge Conservation Initiative and Forum and run as the CCF Summer Symposium 2016)
    – Economics, Culture and Politics of Food (co-organised with the Centre of Development Studies).

Bookings for the event are now open. Tickets are available at £39 (standard) and £19.50 (students) for the Thursday and Friday programmes, with reduced prices for attending either one of the days. Refreshments including a buffet lunch on the Friday are included.
