On June 27th, the University of Vermont is holding a conference on sustainable food systems, entitled The Necessary (r)Evolution for Sustainable Food Systems. Here is the conference description:
Influential thinkers and positive change makers will exchange their best ideas to inspire, focus, and strengthen individual and collective action for a sustainable food system.
This one-day event will shine a spotlight on and amplify the most important ideas, initiatives, and voices for the necessary food systems revolution. The power of this day and the hundreds gathered together will awaken some, re-energize others, help advance a shared vision for the future of food we desire, fortify the movement, and make clear specific ways each person can help transform the system.
You can sign up by going to this registration webpage. The conference sounds like a fantastic opportunity to here from a diverse group of presenters on how we can advance the sustainable food system forward in the 21st century. More information about the conference presenters can be found on the UVM Food Feed—Sustainable Food Systems blog.
