CAFS lunchtime seminar series

David PearsonThe Centre for Agroecology and Food Security (CAFS) are starting a lunchtime seminar series on 4th July with “Food Matters: Shrinking the foodprint by shifting consumer demand’ presented by leader of the Food Matters Research Program at the University of Canberra, David Pearson.

David is a marketing professional with extensive international experience in industry and higher education.  He has managed research projects, development activities and student learning while based in Australia and the UK.

David’s research embraces sustainable diets, food systems, transformative consumer change, and social marketing, using mixed research methods. His teaching interests include advertising, branding, marketing communication, research led teaching, work integrated learning, and Interdisciplinary study.

This is the first of four lunch-time seminars being hosted in the Jaguar Building by CAFS. Topics are set to include ecological pest management, agroforestry, policy research on gender and the right to food. Presentations may range from newly minted research ideas to discussions on the implications of research findings for policy and practice.

The Centre’s lunchtime seminars provide a lively discussion forum for staff at Coventry University, visiting fellows, center associates, PhD students, and other scholars and practitioners. Visiting fellows and associates to CAFS are asked to make a lunchtime presentation early in their visit to the centre so that others can hear about their research projects and identify colleagues with similar interests.

WHEN: Thursday lunchtime, 12.30 – 14.00 hrs.

Jaguar Building, Room JA G25.

 This seminar series is designed for the active research community at Coventry University and other interested persons, including lecturers, PhD and MSc students, and anyone else who wishes to learn more about these topics.
