Creating Equitable, Sustainable, and Resilient Food Systems


Virtual Meeting:

Food. Though we depend on it to survive and thrive, many Americans have become increasingly disconnected from the complex systems that provide our food.

The Fall 2022 Honors Colloquium at the University of Rhode Island, “Just Good Food: Creating Equitable, Sustainable, and Resilient Food Systems,” will explore ways to reconnect with our food systems through topics including: food history and culture; social-ecological impacts and planetary limits; food, race, and gender; political economy of food systems; indigenous foodways and food sovereignty; agroecology; and urban agriculture, innovation, and social entrepreneurship.

Please join us for this multifaceted exploration of the past, present, and future of local and global food systems through the lenses of sustainability, equity, justice, and resilience.

Coordinators: Marta Gomez-Chiarri, John Taylor
