Rylands Breakfasts are our cafe series of debates addressing important sustainability issues in an interesting and thought provoking way. Each speaker will give a 5 minute provocation followed by audience questions and panel debate.
We look forward to seeing you for some coffee, croissants and discussion.
Food - Keeping it Local
What's the secret to sustainable food systems? It could be 'think global and eat local' if a raft of local community based initiatives are to be believed. Whether it's better diets, less carbon, or a reduction in food waste, local initiatives are being seen as the key to making the food on our plate more sustainable.
