Food Cultures in Transition: Veganism, Intersectionality and Climate Sustainability event at Think Corner, 28th of Nov.

Although animal rights and the detrimental environmental impact of meat production have been long-discussed topics, societal transition toward more a sustainable and ethical food culture has been slow.

This event deals with social, cultural and political negotiations on climate sustainable foods and veganism: how are identities, norms and institutional practices negotiated when people switch to plant-based eating? Food, climate and species relations are questions that require not only natural scientific exploration, but also cultural and intersectional analyses, which involves paying attention to various forms of inequalities and categories of difference in the contexts of food production and consumption.

Time: Wednesday, the 28th of November 2018 at 17:00-19:00
Venue: Think Corner’s Think Lounge (2nd floor). Yliopistonkatu 4, Helsinki.
