FEED2: Gastropolitics

  • Senate House Malet Street London, WC1E 7HU United Kingdom (map)


Food is at the core of some of the big challenges of our time: The health of our species and our planet are at stake. Change won’t come from tearing down the old system, but by coordinating our efforts to find better solutions.

GastroPolitics will ignite the debate around the methods of collective and individual action to promote positive change in our food system.

Experts and scientists will inspire, artistic performances and immersive experiences will illustrate the debate in the Crossmodalist style.

Speakers and moderators:

Shane Holland - Executive Chair, Slow Food UK

Prof. Charles Spence – Crossmodal Research Laboratory, Experimental Psychology, Oxford University

Carolyn Steel – Architecture, Philosophy, Smart cities.

Tia Kansara – Economics, Architecture, Human Evolution, Replenish

Jonathan Cave – Economics, Public Policy

Julian Baggini – Philosophy, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Philosophers' Magazine

Prof Barry Smith - Director of The Institut of Philosophy,  founder of the Centre for the Study of the Senses
