Centre for Sustainable Food Systems Public Launch

**This event was a huge success, “sold out” well in advance [okay, the tickets were free], with an engaging panel discussion on the limits and opportunities involved in the transition towards sustainable systems – including a rousing discussion of the dangers and benefits of using those (often abused) words! The launch of the Centre was one of the reasons that, for the second week in a row, the research partnership is “trending” on the SSHRC website!
