Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


Join our panel in Gateshead to discover how the food we eat affects the natural world.

Chef and broadcaster Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall hosts a discussion to get to the bottom of your questions about the relationship between our food and our planet.

World food production grew from 1.84 billion tonnes in 1961 to 4.38 billion tonnes in 2007, yet people still go hungry.

How can we feed the world sustainably and equitably while protecting nature? Would eating less red meat make a real difference? What is the future of farming?

Get involved by submitting your question to the panel when reserving a seat online, or come along beforehand to meet researchers from Newcastle University, who will be demonstrating how their work is addressing some of the biggest challenges in our global food system.

This event is part of You and the Planet, a series exploring global environmental issues with world-renowned speakers from science, business, politics and more.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
