Thursday 2nd March: Cambridge Sustainable Food Business Awards Relaunch

McCormack Room, University Centre 15:00-17:00 add to google calendar
Local food businesses play a vital role in creating a Sustainable Food City and CSF is very keen to work in partnership with them. The Cambridge Sustainable Food Pledge for Businesses is a free award, which is open to all local food businesses. The award was successfully piloted last year (with funding from Cambridge City Council), and at our relaunch in March you can hear the results of the pilot scheme and talk to businesses who took part in the first stage.

At the relaunch of CSF's Awards for Businesses Theresa Marteau, Director of the Behaviour and Health Research Unit, University of Cambridge, will talk about Changing our Behaviour to achieve Sustainable Diets. This event is primarily aimed at local food businesses, but we are more than happy for other people interested in food sustainability to attend too!

If you wish to attend the event, please email guy@cambridgesustainablefood.org to let us know. More...

Do you wish politicians would listen to your views on the environment, climate change and sustainability? Not sure how (or whether) to vote in our newly devolved region's Mayoral Election in May 2017?

Do you want cleaner air? Better, cheaper trains and busses? More energy efficient homes? More abundant nature? More action to prevent climate change? These are all questions on which the Mayor and the new combined authority will have a big say, because they will be responsible for housing and transport, and will have a big budget.

Come to this free event and put your questions to the leading Mayoral candidates, with Dr Aled Jones in the chair to ensure fair play and a good debate. Booking via eventbrite More...
