Our next lecture is:
Sustainable food production: Farming for a better future
Professor Phil Thomas, Director, Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation, Perth
Tuesday 28 January 2014, 7 pm
Kydd Building, Abertay University Dundee, Bell Street
*Sponsored by Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation*
Increasing global population and related pressures on use of natural resources have placed the ‘sustainability’ at the centre of national and international policy considerations. This talk looks at the supply of protein foods and the farming systems on which they depend and poses the question: ‘How do we achieve improved sustainability?’ And the answers may not be what you might expect!
Also we would like to point you in the direction of our YouTube page, where there are some excellent videos of previous talks by Ben Tatler, Sir Philip Cohen and Barbara Webb.
You can view all these videos here http://www.youtube.com/user/BritishSciTayFife.
Here’s a sneak preview of the first clip of the informative and entertaining talk presented by Prof. Barbara Webb from the University of Edinburgh, as part of our 2010-2011 lecture series.
