Food Climate Research Network

The FCRN’s aim is to increase our understanding of how the food system contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and what we can do to reduce them.

Its focus is broad, encompassing technological options, behaviour change and the policy dimension. We look at the role of technology in reducing food-related emissions but also at what changes in our behaviour (in what and how we eat).

Get Food into your local planning documents

Brighton & Hove is the first Local Authority in the UK to adopt planning advice to encourage the provision of growing spaces in new developments as part of its commitment to sustainable development {1}. Food growing in urban areas is too often limited by lack of space, but this new advice encourages developers to make creative use of walls, roofs, balconies and edible landscaping at the start of the planning process.

Urbivore

Urbivore is a new social venture and charity which believes urban agriculture can make an important contribution to the regeneration of distressed cities where old industries have failed, and to pockets of deprivation in inner-city areas.

Through the local production of fresh food at a commercial scale, Urbivore aims to create apprenticeships and work for socially excluded groups, as well as offer training to wider communities. We will work with an intergenerational model and promote health and well-being through volunteer programmes and other services.
