UVM Food Systems Summit: Leading the Necessary (r)Evolution for Sustainable Food Systems

“How can we create regional food systems that are viable alternatives to the conventional one that exists now?”

The Food Systems Summit at the University of Vermont will convene a dynamic and diverse group of people through conferences, courses, and events this summer (2012) to discuss and plan strategies that address this issue.

There is no better place than Vermont (especially in the summertime) to bring together the people for this necessary revolution. Vermont’s human scale allows it to serve as a “living laboratory” for exploring new solutions to these chronic problems. Vermont’s tradition of positive deviance and cutting-edge innovation, in the face of adversity, is widely shared beyond its borders and makes it a rich site for the creation of sustainable models adaptable around the world.

You can participate in at least one of the many Summit events this summer:
