Reflections From The 2019 Urban Food Policy Conference

How often do we stop to think about the importance of food in our lives? Having access to healthy, cheap and quality food is fundamental to our overall health and wellbeing. However for billions of people around the world, their cities are not set up for this. I was recently at the Milan Urban Food…

Sustainable Travel Guide: Warsaw

This was one of my favourite guides to write! Warsaw is a bustling, vibrant city with an emerging hipster scene (but not in an annoying way). They have heaps of vegan options, cute craft breweries, amazing bike paths and so many parks! The only thing I didn't love about Poland was the weather! It was…

Travelling through the cities and towns of Turkey is an eye opening experience. The food, culture and scenery is breathtaking.

Food Waste: A Global and Local Perspective

After an intense food waste moment in the Balkans I decided to research which countries are managing their food waste effectively.

Their standard meals for 1…

Walking around the streets of Sarajevo, buildings are riddled with bullet holes alongside monuments and graffiti remembering those lost in the Yugoslav war in the 1990s.  Rebuilding the country is…
