The Necessary (r)Evolution for Sustainable Food Systems
Public Conference Thursday, June 27, 2013
Time: 1:00pm-6:00pm, reception following the event from 5:00pm-6:00pm with light snacks/appetizers
Influential thinkers and positive change makers will exchange their best ideas to inspire, focus, and strengthen individual and collective action for a sustainable food system.
This one-day event will shine a spotlight on and amplify the most important ideas, initiatives, and voices for the necessary food systems revolution. The power of this day and the hundreds gathered together will awaken some, re-energize others, help advance a shared vision for the future of food we desire, fortify the movement, and make clear specific ways each person can help transform the system.
We will bring together influential and innovative voices from the sustainable food movement for this day of inspiration and call to action. The goal is to connect people across disciplines around the urgent issue of our broken food system and inspire people to take their place in the necessary revolution.
What: Speakers will take the stage, give 10-15 minute talks and then join the audience. The next speaker will immediately follow. There is not space for questions or comments or break-out sessions. There will be two breaks during the talks and a reception at the end which are all great times to connect with fellow attendees and the speakers.
When: June 27, 1pm-6:00pm
Where: The Royall Tyler Theater at the University of Vermont
Cost: $25 per person (covers admission, two breaks and a reception with the presenters following the event from 5:00pm-6:00pm with light refreshments)
