The Berkeley Food Institute presents The Food Exchange, a series designed to foster faculty and student engagement and cross-disciplinary thinking, and to become a leading public forum for the exchange of ideas about the food system. The Food Exchange engages leading national and global experts from off-campus with eminent UC Berkeley faculty in unique conversations about topics that are highly relevant for transitioning to a more diverse, just, resilient, and healthy food system.
This event will engage leading experts and a diverse UC Berkeley audience in a unique conversation about the right to food agenda and how it intersects with international public health and development goals, especially in developing countries. How can a right-to-food approach inform and support broad public policy agendas on development and public health? How might policy interventions change if we frame the discourse around food, poverty, health, and development from this perspective? And how might the actions and responsibilities of various institutions (NGOs, the private sector, and international governmental institutions) change as a result?
