This Zoom session is from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST: Combining Scholarship and Activism: An Intergenerational Exchange. Information about the session and registration is HERE. Bob Gottlieb and I will address how to combine food policy scholarship and activism in discussion with two much younger colleagues, Ivonne Quiroz and Lo Anderson.
Weekend Reading: Urban Food Policy
The International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems (IPES) has issued a new report with five case studies on successful urban food policy. lead authors are Corinna Hawkes and Jess Halliday.
- Belo Horizonte—food security
- Nairobi—urban agriculture
- Amsterdam—healthy weight
- Golden Horseshoe (Ontario, Canada)—food and farming
- Detroit—urban agriculture
It’s wonderfully written and illustrated.
And it is highly instructive about what has to be in place to put these policies in action (the report calls them enablers).
You want a food policy in your town? This will help.
