Environment, Farming & Social Policy: Towards an integrated food strategy in Northern Ireland

Friday 20 October 2017

Queens University Belfast, Canada Room, Lanyon Building, University Road, Belfast

 

QUB-Nexus

 

This event is the final conference organised by the QUB Nexus project, and takes place on Friday 20th October, 10:30am – 3:30pm, in the Canada Room, Lanyon Building, QUB.

There will be a presentation of the project, focussing on key themes and perspectives that emerged from interviews and workshops. Our research indicates there is a growing consensus for a post–Brexit agrifood strategy based on collaboration between the environmental sector and farming sector. A separate theme has been concern about social policy aspects of food, including food poverty and diet–related illness. The need for joined–up thinking, regarding food policy, was also a strong, recurring theme in the research.

Guest panelists will be invited to open the discussion by responding to the project findings and commenting on the future development of food, farming and environment policy in Northern Ireland. Panelists will include: Patrick Casement (Chair of NI Environment Link and Nature Matters NI), Michele Shirlow (CEO of Food NI), and Sinéad Furey (Lecturer in Consumer Studies at University of Ulster, with research interests in food poverty and nutrition policy).

The event will also involve an ‘open space’–style session over lunch with themed table discussions, including: the future of agrifood strategy post–Brexit; a rights–based approach to food; establishing a soil health research and advocacy network; and setting up a QUB Student Union food hub.
