Cambridge Sustainable Food has signed up for the national Sustainable Fish Cities campaign, run by Sustain. We will be approaching a number of local organisations (in particular schools and higher education institutions; hospitals; workplace canteens; high-profile restaurants) asking them to pledge to avoid unsustainable fish from the MCS “Fish to avoid” list, in the first instance. (The pledge is in stages, with organisations able to gain stars for further actions, up to and including full accreditation by the MSC.) We are grateful to a group of Cambridge University students participating in the Cambridge Hub Social Innovation project, who worked on this project for six weeks in October and November, producing a very helpful report (including a campaign strategy).
