EAT FOR OUR FUTURE campaign from 19 July


A  Cambridge Sustainable Food event

2G3S is helping Cambridge Sustainable Food (CSF) to promote its “Eat for our Future” campaign this Summer.   The aim of the campaign is to encourage residents in South Cambridgeshire to move toward a more sustainable “Climate Diet” by changes in what we cook at home.

If you eat food, you are part of a food system which currently generates one quarter of global C02 emissions.  A Climate Diet will help to reduce these emissions to sustainable levels, by a reduction in our collective consumption of meat and dairy products by placing vegetables and pulses at the centre of the table, offering both improved health as well as environmental benefits.

CSF have set up a special website which provides more information, videos and recipe ideas.  You can get involved by signing up online to pledge the changes you are willing to try over a week or two, or for the whole month, and can send in photos of meals you have prepared for the on-line gallery.

The campaign will kick off with a (virtual) film night on Monday 19th July at 7pm.  You can book to join the screening here.

On Friday 30th July, there will be an event in Sawston to promote the campaign, organised by 2G3S and CSF.  Local chef and food writer Rosie Sykes will be preparing climate-friendly snacks, which we will be able to sample after we have seen her prepare them.  The event will run from 11am to late afternoon on Friday 30th July, and will take place outside Boswell’s bakery (near Mica hardware) on Sawston High Street.  We are grateful to Boswell & Son for their kind permission for us to use this location.

Booking is not necessary for this event, so if you are in the area, please do come along on the day to take a look!
