Special Programs - Food, Sustainability & Globalization: A Weekend Educator Workshop
Program Dates: 10/21/11-10/22/11
Friday: 10:30-5:15 (with optional dinner at area restaurant)
As U.S. consumers, what we choose to eat both shapes and is shaped by a complex global food system. It is a system that is under growing strain due to climate change, globalization, and a world population that will soon surpass seven billion people. How we address the challenge of food security worldwide has wide-ranging implications for our society, culture and the environment. Please join us for a weekend workshop as we explore these connections and discuss emerging approaches in sustainable food production.
