Cambridge Global Challenges


The realities of eating a diet that is healthy for us and healthy for the planet may not always match up to ideals. A multitude of factors influence what we eat, many of which are outside our direct control. From food prices and affordability, to social factors like culture, attitudes and beliefs, determinants of diet are complex and interlinked. Is healthy, sustainable food for all really possible?

A panel including Dr Jean Adams, Dr Chris Kaplonski, and PhD researchers Emma Garnett and Charlotte Payne will discuss their insights, chaired by Professor Sumantra Ray.


This is a public event, hosted by the Cambridge Global Food Security Initiative as part of the University's Festival of Ideas 2017.
