Food For Thought – Week Six

Aisling Halligan, Self Help Africa Development Education team: Food for Thought Summary and the Future of Food

Welcome back to Food for Thought: How to Feed the World in the 21st Century. This is the final week of our online course – thanks so much for being part of it! 

You’ll recognise this week’s Food for Thought presenter Aisling Halligan, from Self Help Africa’s Development Education team. Aisling has introduced our previous speakers, and this week is stepping up to the main stage as the presenter for our final Food for Thought session – a summary of the main themes of the course to date, and a look to the future of food.

Thank you so much for being part of the first-ever Food for Thought online course. We’d love to hear your thoughts – please take a few minutes to complete our post-course questionnaire, and we’ll email you a certificate of participation, and we’ll plant a tree for you in Africa too!
