Borough Market Talks: The future of food in the climate crisis: Borough Market, Bankside & Beyond

Join food historian and host of the Borough Market Cookbook Club, Angela Clutton, in discussion with panellists Carolyn Steel, Tom Hunt and Charles Tebbutt, discussing how food markets (and Borough Market, in particular), provide a key influence and contribution to a carbon neutral community.

The panel will also explore some more radical realities – such as the future of food in Bankside and what that could look like with the introduction of urban farms, underground farming and hydroponics.

Panel:

The panel will be made up of Carolyn Steel, whose work on food and cities is world-renowned; chef and climate-change campaigner Tom Hunt, who recently published Eating for Pleasure, People & Planet; and Market trader Charles Tebbutt, founder of Food & Forest – committed to supporting and spreading the benefits of agroforestry.

This event is part of Bankside 2025: pioneering a low carbon neighbourhood, a programme of activity taking place from 25-29 October 2021 at a converted Southwark Street railway arch. Organised by Better Bankside and open to the public in the run up to COP26, the arch will transform into a hub for climate action, mobilising active participation from businesses and individuals from across Bankside and London.
