Who, how and where is the food that comes to your table? (30/05/2017)

Do we know how much our food costs in our daily diet?

Have we considered the social and environmental costs of our global agro-food system?

Elena Gadea, PhD in Sociology and Professor of Sociology at the University of Murcia, will try to answer these and other questions in the talk 'Who, how and where does the food that comes to your table?

Which is part of the cycle 'The transformations of the rural world in the Region of Murcia' within the program 'Cartagena Piensa' organized by the Council of Culture of the City of Cartagena together with the Network of Municipal Libraries.

He will introduce to the speaker Jeisson Martínez, member of the Cartagena Piensa promoter group.

The topics of interest that Gadea treats are linked to the sociology of agriculture, international migration, work and urban policies.

In recent years he has participated in several research projects, both national and international, on the enclaves of intensive agriculture, with field studies in the Region of Murcia.

Importing food that is produced thousands of kilometers away and exporting the ones we produce locally, generate serious problems of food sovereignty, as well as the challenges of maintaining a socially and environmentally sustainable system.

The talk-colloquium will take place on Wednesday May 31, at 20:00 hours, in the Josefina Soria Library of the Ramón Alonso Luzzy Cultural Center.

Access is free and free until capacity is reached.
