7th December 2020 | Live Stream

Food, and how we search for and consume it, has defined our human journey. From our foraging hunter-gatherer ancestors to the enormous appetites of modern cities, food has shaped our bodies and homes, our politics and trade, and our climate. Whether it's the daily decision of what to eat, or the monopoly of industrial food production, food touches every part of our world. But by forgetting its value, we have drifted into a way of life that threatens our planet and ourselves.

This 7th December, architect and leading thinker on food and cities, Carolyn Steel is at Salon London to point the way to a better future.

Join us on the sofa as Carolyn draws on insights from philosophy, history, architecture, literature, politics and science, as well as stories of the farmers, designers and economists who are remaking our relationship with food in her provocative and exhilarating vision for change.

Food remains central to addressing the predicaments and opportunities of our urban, digital age. Find out how the power of seeing and acting through food can benefit our work and everyday lives.
