Welcome to Citizen Food Futures, an online event organised by the University of Manchester & Manchester Metropolitan University as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2021.

We have collected the views of a series of academic experts either currently based or formerly from the two Manchester universities. Watch them make a case for a range of possible food futures and let us know what you think, either by commenting below the videos or through the social media links below.

  • What are your thoughts on the visions set out by the experts? 

  • What values should be encapsulated in how we produce & consume food going forward?

  • What needs to be done and who needs to do it? 

This event aims to help us explore together how we might develop a food system that is not just good for the planet but good for us all.


We'll be posting material across the week in the following social media accounts, so hope over and join the conversation!
