The theme for the next in our popular series of Healthy Communities Research Forum seminars will be how spatial planning and public health can support the transition to a sustainable food system that is good for the planet and human health.

  • What is a sustainable food system?
  • Can urban areas feed themselves?
  • How can public health and planning facilitate this agenda?
