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

Friday 29 October

BANKSIDE 2025: BOROUGH MARKET

On 29 October at 1pm, join food historian and host of the Borough Market Cookbook Club Angela Clutton for an online panel discussion of how food markets (and Borough Market in particular) can provide a key contribution to, and significant influence upon, a carbon neutral community.

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, a stall committed to supporting the benefits of agroforestry.

As well as examining the role of markets, 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.

Register for the event here.

This event is part of Bankside 2025: Pioneering a Low Carbon Neighbourhood, a programme of activities 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 be transformed into a hub for climate action, mobilising active participation from businesses and individuals from across Bankside and London.
