Hannah from UBC shared this with me, just passing it along!
We’re writing to invite you to register for our event on September 18th: Seeding Transformation – A Global Forum on Food Systems and Agroecology . The event will dig into the core issues at the roots of the problems with our food system and features a slate of panelists from around the world who are at the forefront of thinking and action on just transitions in food systems. It will be held both in-person in Vermont and will also be live-streamed.
We hope to see you there!
