Invitation to take part in food system research in Bristol UK

Bristol and the Southwest Food System Research Bristol and Bath Science Park on the 1st November, 29th November (2011) and 12th of January 2012 10:00 - 16:30.

You are invited to participate in an EU funded modelling of Bristol and the South West's food sector - The CONVERGE project is investigating how we can manage and allocate the earth's resources fairly and make the transition towards a sustainable future. For this research we will be working with local business and organisations affected by the food sector to investigate the potential impacts of things like climate change, population demographics, and rising oil and fertiliser prices on the food system and related industries. We do this through workshops - our first workshops took place last month in Reykjavik in Iceland - a country with a high dependence on imported goods. Through these workshops we will develop a vision for a sustainable food system, and produce a realistic computer model of how a sustainable local food system could operate in Bristol including production, employment, import, export etc.

How will resource scarcity affect industry in Bristol?

This event has now taken place: - View slides from this seminar, discuss this on TED or on linkdin

-------------------------

The CONVERGE project invites you to the first of a series of events from the CONVERGE Rethinking Globalisation seminar series.

We launch the series on May 25th (13:00 - 16:00) in Bristol with a session on the latest research into resource burn-off rates, and how they may affect industry in Europe. We will look at how some resources may be substituted and at examples of companies who have dealt with changes to their access to resources. Following this we will have a discussion session on the impacts this could have on industry in Bristol in the future and on opportunities for partnership and further research.

Year 2 of the CONVERGE project

The weather is a little on the grimey side as the team rolls into the city from Hungary, Iceland, Sweden and India. What the city can't promise in fine weather it delivers in conviviality and cosyness as the team find themselves nested in a host of local eco-bnb's following CONVERGE's tradition of sustainable researching. The CONVERGE team are in Bristol to take stock and celebrate 1 YEAR of the CONVERGE project, and to prepare for the year ahead.
