    Carolyn Steel Speaker Biography

    Sustainability speaker Carolyn Steel ‘s goal is to educate people about food transportation and production in today’s cities. She believes that food can help people understand how a city works.

    Due to her passion for architecture and knowledge of how cities and marketplaces are built, she served as a studio director at the London School of Economics’ Cities, Architecture & Engineering program.

    Carolyn was a visiting professor and researcher at Wageningen University in the Netherlands from 2010 to 2013. She is famous globally for her speeches about food and cities. In fact, speaker Carolyn Steel has spoken at places like the Harvard Graduate School of Architecture and the Slow Food University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy. Carolyn has made multiple appearances in the United Kingdom and overseas, and she has worked with several cities and institutions. These include Stroom den Haag, the Oxford Food Symposium, the MAS Museum in Antwerp, and the City of Groningen. At the MAS Museum, she inspired a new permanent exhibition, Antwerp à la Carte.

    Carolyn Steel Keynote Topics

    For British architect, Carolyn Steel, the question of how we want to eat in the future is really a question of how we want to live. Food has become invisible in our cities, but it hasn’t always been and doesn’t have to remain this way. Using food as a lens, she takes us on a journey to understand the myriad ways in which food has shaped the cities and societies we live in, and how, in accepting the true value of food, we do away with the illusion of “cheap food” and play an active role in the food system.

    Every day, in a city the size of London, 30 million meals are served. But where does all the food come from? Architect Carolyn Steel discusses the daily miracle of feeding a city, and shows how ancient food routes shaped the modern world.
