Professor Burton will contextualise food security among global challenges, and explore the UN Sustainable Development Goals  and sustainability in food production. The impact of geography and culture will be examined, using meat poultry production as a case study to highlight the tensions between achieving food security and other global needs. Finally Emily will explore the challenges and opportunities of emerging protein sources.

Biography Emily is Professor of Sustainable Food Production at Nottingham Trent University, specialising in optimisation of poultry feed and low carbon protein production from poultry meat and eggs. Emily leads the cross-university strategic research theme 'Sustainable Futures' for her university. The outputs of Emily’s research were used as the basis of a Research Councils UK impact case study submitted to UK Government, particularly focussing on the pipeline of highly skilled scientists.

Programme The bar will open at 6:30pm, there will be a light buffet served at 7pm, and the lecture will commence at 7:30pm. There will be time for questions and discussion afterwards.
