Seminar Cycle on Urban Food Planning | The Influence of Food Ethics and Justice in the City

14 Jun 18:00
Auditório do CIUL

The 6 th and last edition of the  Seminar Cycle on Urban Food Planning, organised in partnership with The Food, Farming and Forestry College (F3) and the Urban Informatin Cenre of Lisbon (CIUL), will reflect on the topic " The Influence of Food Ethics and Justice in the City" and will count on talks by Hunter Halder (Re-Food), Jorge Cancela (FA-ULisboa), and Rute Saraiva (FD-ULisboa). 

In the cities, there is a paradoxical phenomenon of massified food choices and, at the same time, an increase in personalised food, which is a situation that reflects problems of social cohesion and matters of food justice and raises serious questions of ethics, particularly in the context of sustained economic development and social stratification. It is therefore important to reflect on the choices and role of consumers in the food supply chain and the new relations between production and consumption, in particular in relation to spatial planning and the potential of urban and peri-urban agriculture.

The event will take place on the 14 th of June, at 18.00, in the CIUL Auditorium – Rua Viriato, 13 – Picoas, Plaza Núcleo 6-E, 1º 1050-227 Lisboa (see the map  here).  

Free entrance, subject to compulsory enrolment, limited to the seating capacity.

Seminar Cycle on Urban Food Planning 
This cycle is based around six specialist topics from Universidade de Lisboa and other sectors of society with complementary skills in areas of knowledge and performance.
Urban Food Planning is the result of the land, production, consumption, culture and the environment, and is approached with a holistic vision to generate a multidimensional debate that examines expectations and actions.
