UBC Okanagan – University of Exeter Symposium: Co-producing Regional Food System Networks
September 7, 2022 at 8:30 am - 11:00 amFree
The UBCO-Exeter symposium is an opportunity to share experiences and knowledge on the issues of regional food networks in British Columbia, Canada and Devon, UK. We’ll explore our similar and divergent experiences, existing challenges, actions for change and the role of networks in supporting pathways to co-create sustainable food systems.
Dr. Rebecca Sandover from the University of Exeter and The Devon Food Partnership, UK; Eva-Lena Lang from Organic BC; Liz Blakeway from Land to Table; and Dr. Mary Stockdale will highlight the tensions and opportunities for regional food systems in the face of climate change, COVID recovery, cost of living crises, legacies of land-based injustices and more.
Rebecca Sandover (University of Exeter) and Mary Stockdale (University of British Columbia, Okanagan) will then lead a roundtable discussion between the speakers and audience members.
This will be a hybrid event via Zoom and with a limited number of seats available in-person in Arts 368, UBC Okanagan.
