Future of Food Global Dialogue Series

Future of Food Global Dialogue Series

The UBC Future of Food Global Dialogue Series is a campus-wide initiative bringing together food security and sustainability experts from across the university and the globe to regularly engage the UBC community and the public around the Global Food System.

The series uses various formats to foster discussion, such as dialogue circles, seminars, panel discussions, performances, photo exhibitions, and film screenings. Topics include climate change, food security, biodiversity, social justice, culture, and policy.

We invite you to consider collaborating with us or to suggest ideas for topics and speakers. If your team is planning to host speakers next year who may be a fit for our series, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Melanie Kuxdorf, Communications Coordinator with the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm.
