Today is International Day for Biological Diversity. This year’s theme is ‘our biodiversity, our food, our health’ and aims to increase knowledge and awareness of how our food systems, nutrition and health depend on biodiversity and healthy ecosystems.
To mark the occasion we have made the recording of our recent Monday night lecture Food security: a global challenge available for everyone to watch online until Monday 27 May. In his lecture Professor Peter Jackson, from the University of Sheffield, highlights the challenges we face with global food security issues, possible solutions in the face of food poverty and why having a more connected way of thinking could be the answer to providing a more food secure future.
Watch Food security: a global challenge.
