Farm to Globe: Transforming Our Food Systems
About this Webinar Series:
This summer, the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at the UBC Farm, generously sponsored by RBC Royal Bank, and in partnership with the UBC Faculty of Land and Food Systems and the BC Food Web, is presenting the second season of our Future of Food webinar series: “Farm to Globe: Transforming Our Food Systems”.
This year’s series will focus on what has become readily apparent not only to our food systems experts, but to the general public – that our food systems need fixing. We’ll be exploring the most pressing issues our food systems face today, everything from how restaurants have had to change and adapt during the pandemic, the biodiversity crisis, food school programs as an avenue to address food insecurity, and so much more! We’ll also be focusing on the social and racial inequalities that are present in and exacerbated by all of these issues. Our speakers will be sharing action items and takeaway points to inspire our community to create tangible change.
Join for discussions that we hope will drive action and discover what steps we need to take to transform our food systems – from farm to globe.
