About this event

Colin Tudge (Biologist, Writer, Co-founder of the Campaign for Real Farming)

It should be easy to make sure that everyone who is ever likely to be born could be fed to the highest standards of nutrition and gastronomy, without wrecking the rest of the world. But economic dogma and the present political hierarchy are making this impossible. If we really give a damn, then we, people at large, just have to ignore the status quo and start doing things differently. All over the world, this is already happening
