Webinar: “Shaping Food Policies for Resilient Regions”

October 30th, 2020 | 12:00 – 1:00 PM ET

Join FLEdGE researchers for the first webinar in our Good Food Solutions by FLEdGE webinar series, which will take place over the next several months and feature our Good Food Principles.

To kick off the series, FLEdGE researchers and community partners will discuss the importance of innovative food policy for resilient regional food systems. Moderated by Irena Knezevic and featuring Sandra Mark, Anna-Liisa Aunio, Anne Marie Aubert, and Johanna Wilkes, this webinar will explore the intersections of regional infrastructure, municipal policies, and local food networks. Panelists will consider how practitioners can work across scales to imagine regional food systems that are more just, equitable, and resilient. 
The webinar will be followed by an optional informal coffee chat with the panelists.  

This webinar will be in English with French materials available afterwards.
