How can communities work together to combat the rising cost of living and reduce food waste?

With the cost of living rising and more people than ever forced to use food banks, are there ways in which communities can work together and support each other sustainably?

Join us for a special discussion as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science in Northern Ireland. Panellists include representatives from food banks, community fridges and community gardens and the aim of the event is to outline what is already happening across Northern Ireland and to discuss what we can do going forward.

The event is being led by Dr Amanda Slevin and Prof John Barry – Co-Directors, of the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action (SECA) at Queen’s University Belfast.

Anyone is welcome, and the event will take place in Queen’s University, Peter Froggatt Centre, Room PFC/02/018.

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
