This June, UVM’s Food Systems Summit will be the venue for intense examination and exchange of ideas, knowledge, and practical skills. A valuable part of the summit is the The Necessary [r]Evolution for Sustainable Food Systems Conference on June 27. This year’s focus is on creating regional food systems that are better alternatives to the conventional ones that exist today. Several nationally-recognized food systems leaders are scheduled to speak.
Following a very successful Public Conference in 2012, this half-day event will shine a spotlight on and amplify the most important ideas, initiatives, and voices for the necessary food system revolution.
In addition to the Public Conference, UVM is also offering an intensive program for Breakthrough Leaders June 10-28. Participants will engage in a three week-long program combining an online and on-campus program that promises to expand their capacity to recognize and create positive, forward-looking solutions for our broken food system. The program’s online component will start June 10, 2013, immediately followed by a residential learning experience on the campus of the University of Vermont June 23-28, 2013.
