Organised and run by Sustainability Guru DR ALAN KNIGHT OBE, these meetings happen every six months and form part of a SUSTAINABILITY CLUB where The Food and Drink Innovation Network sorts out “what’s hot and what’s not” for the Food & Drink Industry.
The seminar draws-from [and feeds-back to] the major food & drink players and Alan networks with the club members through Sustainability Bulletins and a special-access website.
The event will take place at the Staverton Park Conference Centre,Daventry, Northants on Thursday 25th November.
The agenda for the days seminar will run as follows:
The day begins with speed-briefings from industry thought-leaders which are up-to-the-minute and so have not yet been disclosed.
They will include agriculture, natural resources and food security. Primary and secondary distribution. Water & carbon. Ethics, local sourcing, fairtrade, rainforest & organic. Labelling & Law. Government Structure & Policy and more.
The Speed-Briefings on November 25th will be from:
DR ALAN KNIGHT OBE, SINGLE PLANET LIVING.
JULIAN WALKER-PALIN, HEAD OF CORPORATE POLICY FOR SUSTAINABILITY AND ETHICS, ASDA
PROFESSOR TIM LANG, FOOD POLICY, CITY UNIVERSITY.
STEVE REESON, HEAD OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY POLICY, THE FOOD & DRINK FEDERATION
After the speed-briefings an open space is run where everyone is invited to join in and propose break-outs on the big issues and then we run those break-outs in parallel for an hour and bottom-out some actions.
In the afternoon, armed with the morning briefings and break-outs Alan Knight runs a big conversation in his own edgy style.
Doors open for early birds at 8:00 am and breakfast is served for all from 8:00 am with the seminar kicking off at 9:00 am and concluding at 4:30 pm latest.
