Meet, Greet, Teach (MGT): An Informal Conversation about Interdisciplinary Teaching on Environmental Issues

Free to attend. Please register by Friday, January 25, 2013:Register Now.

Topic: Food
Who has it and who doesn't; who grows it and who sells it; whether individual buyers, industrial conglomerates, or world governments should dictate food choice; how diversity is maintained and what happens - on the farm and in the market - if it isn't.

Food - so much more than sustenance.

Food - an ultimate environmental issue.

Food - the next nexus of academics at the UW?

Should environmental hot buttons like food become 21st century rallying points for academic education? Come join us for MGT: Eat and Learn, a discussion of whether and how this most central of sustainability topics should also be integrated across the living-learning landscape that is the UW.
