Upcoming Open Dialogue Live: How policy impacts food security

Posted by stephanie Rogers on November 8, 2022 in News

What can be done to improve food security? As part of an upcoming panel discussion, alumni and Dal faculty experts will dive into the issue, the role of policy, and Dal’s role in accessing our region’s strengths in food production and distribution.

Join us for a thought-provoking conversation around the topic of food policy and its impact on food security with special guests: Cassie Hayward, King’s alum and policy analyst with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, Dr. Phoebe Stephens, assistant professor in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security at Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus, and Dr. Gumataw Abebe, assistant professor in the Department of Business and Social Sciences at Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus. The event will be moderated by Dr. Chris Hartt, professor in the Department of Business and Social Sciences at Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus.

This event will be presented in Room 153, Cox Institute. We encourage you to join us in-person for the opportunity to interact with the speakers and be entered to win a door prize valued at $150. For those unable to attend in person, the panel will also be livestreamed via Dalhousie Alumni and Friends Facebook Live and Dalhousie YouTube. All attendees will have an opportunity to engage during the Q&A portion following the discussion.
