WINS Newcastle: Online Event

Changing The Ways We Consume, Eat & Shop

The pandemic has challenged the global food system potentially changing consumption forever. How can we harness these changes for good?

The UN has declared that we face the worst global food crisis for 50 years whilst locally we have seen a seismic shift in how we view and consume food and in the way that we shop. What do issues such as food security and changing consumer behaviours mean for us as both as leaders in sustainability and as consumers?

We’ve also witnessed the strain and instability of supply chains, particularly during the lead up to and the early stages of the lockdown, coupled with food poverty both globally and regionally.

Join us to discuss global challenges and to explore how the emerging shifts in mindset and behaviours might be harnessed through our won roles to impact globally and locally.
