Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

Global Food Security is excited to collaborate with Gloknos on this hybrid event at the Cambridge Festival 2022.

Alternative proteins like plant-based and cultured meats, food products made from insects or precision fermentation, are hailed as environmentally sustainable and ethically clean solutions to the challenges posed by climate change. Some of them are already on offer in supermarkets or restaurants worldwide but we are only witnessing the beginning of a new way of consuming and thinking about ‘food’ that will undoubtedly have a profound impact on our everyday life and cultural behaviour.

We invite interested members of the public to join a panel of experts from the biotech and food sectors in conversation with historians of science, food, and culture to explore this new trend and to discover some of its iconic products.

Please find booking information here.

This event is part of the Cambridge Festival 2022.

Please note that this is a hybrid event with an in-person component to be held in central Cambridge. Tickets will give attendees the option of attending online via Zoom or in-person. Registered attendees will receive a confirmation of the Zoom link or the physical address depending on their choice.
