Dr. Michael Bomford

The Wicked Problem of ‘What’s for Dinner?’

Dr. Bomford will explore some of the far-reaching social and environmental impacts of our daily food choices and their relevance to the seven Unitarian principles. Decisions about what we should eat can become a problem when we have competing influences and incomplete, often contradictory, information. Such problems can be called “wicked”, meaning that they are shifting, multi-faceted, and resist solution. Some choices may be better or worse than others but they are not definitively right or wrong.
