Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

This conference will bring together academic and community-based leaders and change-makers who are working to understand and advance place-based food systems as a foundational element of sustainable society. Participants will share and learn about the latest research and on-the-ground experiences and identify directions for strategic, synergistic, and concerted future study and action.

Place-Based Food Systems 2018: Making the Case, Making It Happen is a two-day conference highlighting the critical efforts of, and synergies between, researchers and community innovators who are working to forge vital place-based food systems. Participants will leave fortified with knowledge and understanding of the latest and best work making the case for place-based food systems, as well as innovative practices putting place-based food systems to into action.  Our intent is for participants to gain an empowering vision of the critical role that place-based food systems can and will play in achieving our sustainable economic, ecological, and societal futures, as well as a revitalized dedication to strategic, collaborative, and forceful strategies moving forward.
