Carolyn Steel “Sitopia: rethinking our lives through food”

On 2 April 2020 I had the distinct pleasure of co-hosting the first Informed Cities webinar with Allison Wildman from ICLEI.

The webinar was called “Sitopia: rethinking our lives through food” an was presented by London-based architect and speaker, Carolyn Steel, author of “Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives” and the recently published “Sitopia: How Food Can Save the World”.

Carolyn is a leading thinker on food and cities. A London-based architect, academic and writer, Carolyn has lectured at Cambridge University, London Metropolitan University, Wageningen University and the London School of Economics.

Her 2008 book, “Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives”, establishing her as an influential voice across a range of fields in academia, industry and the arts. It has been translated into seven languages and has become a key text for architects, planners, green thinkers and food professionals.

We later had a follow up session with Carolyn to answer the remaining questions that we called “Cocktails with Carolyn”. It was a blast!
