Bridge The Gap

Food and Environment

Living in the city, we sometimes feel less connected with our natural environment and we are often less concerned with environmental issues. We don’t realise that if our environment suffers, we will suffer too. We aim to highlight some issues around agriculture, nutrition and the environment and we would like to invite you to the University of Glasgow to discuss and learn more about the following topics: Reconnecting with nature and enjoying its benefits; the role of green spaces and community gardens on health and wellbeing.

  • How can we achieve optimal nutrition with minimal environmental impact?
  • How can we achieve a balance between eating local and imported foods from both the nutritional and environmental point of view?
  • How do local and imported foods affect our health? How can our role of consumers affect food production?
  • How climate change is affecting the rest of the world?
