2019/09/11 Sustainable Food - A systems approach for EU Policy - 19 November 2019, Brussels, Belgium
[Source: Research & Innovation] At this event, we will examine the need for a systems approach to EU food policy including the tensions between agro-ecological approaches and advocates of ‘sustainable intensification’, the need for enhanced biodiversity and steady crop yields, new systems for environmental land management and public engagement in this process. Our wider picture will consider how EU agricultural trade policy and trade governance will need to be reconsidered in order to play a positive role in creating an EU-wide sustainable food system. Our proposed system needs concerted action across governments, an interdisciplinary approach and collaborative policy solutions. The White Rose Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York have key expertise in the benefits of creating sustainable food systems and this event will present their policy recommendations from a UK and EU perspective. Our expert Panel will hear contributions from Professor Sue Hartley OBE, Director of the University of York Environmental Sustainability Institute and former advisor to the European Food Safety Authority and the European Commission on the ecological effects of genetically modified crops; Professor Peter Jackson, Co-Director of the University of Sheffield Institute for Sustainable Food and chair of the current SAM Expert Working Group for the Evidence Review ‘Towards an EU Sustainable Food System’; and Professor Fiona Smith, in International Economic Law at the University of Leeds and invited expert for the DG SANTE Working Group on EU Food Safety in Nutrition in 2050.
