International Week: Global Food Security

From Feb. 6-10, International Week 2017 at the University of Manitoba will explore global food security through panel discussions, public lectures, and workshops led by a wide range of experts, organizations, and community members. All events are free.

Students, faculty and staff will be introduced to a number of alternative solutions for a sustainable food future at both the individual and policy level, and will have opportunities to connect with food justice movements already happening right here on campus, in the local communities, and around the world.
