Future of Food Dialogues: CSFS Associate Seminars and Webinar Series

Since 2020, the CSFS has pivoted to offer events online, allowing access to speakers and audiences across geographic borders.

2021 Summer Webinar Series:

Farm to Globe: Transforming Our Food Systems

This summer, the CSFS at UBC Farm, generously sponsored by RBC Royal Bank and in partnership with UBC LFS and the BC Food Web, will be 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 also 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! Join us for discussions on what steps we need to take to transform our food systems – from farm to globe.
