Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
I’m currently doing a PhD at Queens Belfast, researching post-peak oil scenarios and risk management of city-region food security. As part of the research, I’m planning to conduct ‘scenario workshops’ in Derry, Omagh and Belfast. Each workshop will involve about 15 people, and will address the following questions:
• What are the potential impacts of peak oil on food security ?
• How robust and resilient are current policies and practice ? Can they be adapted
swiftly to cope with the challenges of peak oil ?
• What needs to be done at the NI regional level and city-region level to prepare for
and mitigate the potential risks to food security identified within these scenarios ?
I am seeking the support of transition activists and anyone else with an interest in local food production, to take part in a pilot scenario workshop in early May. A more formal scenario workshop is planned for later in the year, and it is intended that this will include local food activists, local & regional government representatives, farmers’ representatives, etc. If you would be interested in taking part in the pilot, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile 07812454356.
