Speaker information

Robert Biel, Senior Lecturer, Bartlett Development Planning Unit, UCL
Rebecca Payne, the director and producer of the video

Join us for the premiere of Sowing Sustainability: UCL and Urban Food Systems. This film from the Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities looks at new ways of thinking about how we produce and consume food in our modern, urbanising world.

The video features the work of Robert Biel (Bartlett Development Planning Unit, UCL) who, as well as teaching political ecology and a Masters module on "Food and the City", is a practising food grower. He has written a very accessible and popular book "Sustainable Food Systems: The Role of the City", which is available from UCL Press. The book is available as a free pdf, and has been downloaded over 20,000 times
