Food Ethics - Autumn '11
The Autumn ’11 edition of Food Ethics examines the usefulness of futures work in food and farming. Contributors look at the key findings of recent 'future of food' studies, and ask what assumptions underpin these various efforts to explore the future of food. Are these assumptions credible, and how can they inform strategic decision-making?
Food Ethics - Spring '11
In the Spring 2011 edition of Food Ethics, contributors including public health and sustainability experts assess the government’s moves to ‘nudge’ the public towards healthier and greener lives.
Whilst they agree that the science behind nudge theory can be very effective in encouraging healthier and greener behaviour, they say that it should complement and enhance more traditional approaches to policy, not simply replace them.
Food Ethics - Summer '11
The summer 2011 edition of Food Ethics magazine examines the ethics of valuing nature. Contributors discuss the strengths and weaknesses of putting a monetary value on our ecosystem services, and explore other ways to protect biodiversity, including ecological and bioregional economics.
Food Ethics - Winter '10
Fears of food insecurity, water scarcity and the search for diminishing natural resources are making land our most precious asset. The winter edition of Food Ethics takes a closer look at some of these pressures on land in the UK and the developing world, and assesses the best ways of tackling them.
