Access, not excess: novel ways to nourish the world

The following topics will be debated: low-tech solutions for Africa's poorest, GM technology for Africa's farmers, better life-styles for UK's overweights and more nutritious foods for UK's children.

It may be April Fools’ Day, but this is no joke:
have your say by joining in the debate

The 9th Spring Symposium is being mounted by the Oxford International Biomedical Centre (OIBC) and the Royal Institution (Ri). Low-tech solutions for Africa’s poorest, GM technology for Africa’s farmers, better life-styles for UK’s overweights and more nutritious foods for UK’s children will be discussed by experts like Prue Leith, Profs Alan Jackson, Paul Trayhurn, Jeya Henry and Nicholas Nyange (Tanzania).

Following these talks and a buffet lunch, members of the audience will be able to quiz each speaker and put their own views forward in a wide-ranging debate.
