Please review the details below for registration information if available or contact the Convenor if you would like to attend.
As every one of us continues to adjust to the impacts of COVID-19, the Summit is an opportunity to focus on the fragilities in food systems that are being exposed by the crisis – and to regenerate these systems in ways that respond better to everybody’s needs.
This discussion will be focused on the vulnerability of our food system, what pandemic has exposed our vulnerable food system and how we can make it more resilient and equitable. For many – especially those who were already struggling before the pandemic – the recent food system disruptions have led to supply/demand imbalances, job losses, hunger and malnutrition. Yet, while COVID-19 may have catalysed food and nutrition insecurity for many more people, is not the underlying cause of the challenges we are now facing with respect to our food systems.
There will be 30-40 participants in this webinar. This dialogue will bring 4-5 speakers and facilitators- researcher, activist, policy maker, agri-entrepreneurs to share their stories, experiences and facilitate the dialogues discussion.
