Through a low-key, interactive seminar-workshop series, YPARD and SLU Global aim to create a forum for inspiration and dialogues around how to transform our food system sustainably. While primarily student-focused, everyone is very welcome to join in, listen and engage in discussions to inspire and get inspired. As a co-creation forum, participants are encouraged to suggest speakers and moderators, themes and topics etc., which can raise the debate on food systems and anchor transformation in our educational and professional lives.
The hybrid event will take place on the 10th of March from 12:00 to -13:00 CET. The virtual portion will take place via Zoom and in person at Västan, Agricum (Campus Alnarp). We will kick off the forum with Christopher Menor, who will be talking about vertical farming. Urban, small-scale farming of different types is trending worldwide, providing food and livelihoods to many. What are the possibilities, the technological and biological challenges, and what about its sustainability? Chris will talk about his emerging business in this exciting and dynamic area, and we invite everyone to come with their own inputs and experiences.
The in-person session will take place in Alnarp, Sweden (see below). A lunch sandwich will be provided for those registered participants who will participate in person (deadline for registration Wednesday 8th).
