Politicians are important in the work for a sustainable food system. One of SLU Future Food's missions is to work with science for policy - to provide politicians with a scientifically correct basis for decision making. This is why we are participating in the Almedal Week.

During the Almedal Week, SLU Future Food offer our own seminars on current issues and participate in other seminars that deal with issues that are important for a sustainable food system. We want research - real facts - to be the basis for debate as well as decision.

Follow our Twitter account @SLUFutureFood and keep track of what we hear and do in Almedalen.
