Meet, Greet, Teach: Eat and Learn

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Registration has ended.

Who has it and who doesn’t; who grows it and who sells it; whether individual buyers, industrial conglomerates, or world governments should dictate food choice; how diversity is maintained and what happens – on the farm and in the market – if it isn’t.
Food – so much more than sustenance.
Food – an ultimate environmental issue.
Food – the next nexus of academics at the UW?
Should environmental hot buttons like food become 21st century rallying points for academic education? Come join us for MGT: Eat and Learn, a discussion of whether and how this most central of sustainability topics should also be integrated across the living-learning landscape that is the UW.
