Urban Food Policy Forum | Cities, Institutional Food, and Climate Change

Thursday, April 28, 2022
9:30 am – 11:00 am
CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute
CUNY Urban Food Policy Forum

This forum focuses on how cities can use food as a lever for climate change mitigation and the reduction of their GHGs emissions. What is the potential impact of changing institutional food to advance more climate resilient communities? What does measuring adherence to environmental standards guidelines entail? How do demographics relate to food consumption and its environmental impacts? What are the logistics of transitioning institutional food to more climate-aware models, and which may be some potential operational obstacles in the transition and ways to overcome them? On April 28, join the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and guest speakers to explore these and other questions.
