Packed Lunch: From Plate to Planet


Drop in

Wednesday 20 April 2016


Feed your curiosity at our daytime discussions. Drop in to hear local scientists in conversation about their latest experiment, life in the lab and why science matters to everyone, all in the space of your lunch hour. Bring your sarnies with you. First come, first seated.

Public health nutritionist Alan Dangour makes connections between the food on our plate and global environmental changes. In this lunchtime talk, he discusses how changing our diet could not only improve our health, but also reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions.


Alan Dangour, Reader in Food and Nutrition for Global Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
