    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Growing and producing food, distributing and sharing it, accessing it and how we deal with waste food is everyone's business.

    The upcoming Fife Food Summit will focus on key themes including reducing food waste and keeping good food in circulation, how we can use and procure local and sesaonal food more, and work better together to bring about good food for Fife and our planet.

    It will also launch the first steps towards a sustainable climate-friendly Food Partnership and Vision for Fife that is being developed by Fife Council's Climate Change and Zero Waste Team. The event will be chaired by Pete Ritchie, Director of Nourish Scotland, Farmer and Food Expert.

    At this event, keynote speakers and themed workshops will explore ideas and examples of work that are happening both within and out with Fife to inspire changes we can make. 

    The event will be chaired by Pete Ritchie, Executive Director of Nourish Scotland. The Keynote Speakers are two inspiring examples: Ghent en Garde (Belgium), and Edible Edinburgh who will talk about new approaches to food that are making an impact for people, the economy and the planet. Themed workshops will explore ideas and examples of work that are happening both within and outwith Fife to inspire changes we can make. The event is free but booking is required.

    The Summit will use the online platform HOPIN for this event, which will allow for an enjoyable experience and ample opportunity for discussion, networking and accessing exhibits such as films and recordings in the Expo Booths. The event is part of Climate Action Fife, a Fife-wide partnership project between Greener Kirkcaldy, Fife Council, Fife College and Fife Communities Climate Action Network. The event will be hosted by Alan Caldwell Associates.

    The event will take place from 09:30 - 13:00 on Tuesday 22 June 2021. Book a place here.
