This session will explore the key factors that are needed to build a Food Revolution in a city and will answer questions such as:

  • Where do you start when tackling issues across a complex food system?
  • How do you develop effective governance with so many stakeholders?
  • How do you inspire and empower a city to unite behind a movement?
  • How do you tackle inequalities and injustice?

The talk will be followed by an online Q&A session.

Sarah Pullen leads the Food System Team at Birmingham City Council where she has been on a mission to unite the inspiring people behind the city’s many diverse food system projects under the Birmingham Food Revolution movement. The city-wide partnership has co-produced the Birmingham Food System Strategy which aims to transform the city’s communities, environment and economy in order to regenerate the food system. Sarah is also the founder of the not-for-profit organisation Leading Applied Behavioural Science where she has developed initiatives that transform our relationships with food including Healthy Profits and Taste Adventures.
