Food For All: A Conference on Poverty and Global Food Security
Saturday, 15 October 2011 from 08:30 to 17:30 (PDT)
Vancouver, British Columbia
What do we need to know about global food security and poverty?
What are some of the solutions the international community should be pursuing and how can one person make a difference?
To mark World Food Day and the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, the B.C. Council for International Cooperation's Working Group to End Global Poverty presents Food for All: A Conference on Poverty and Global Food Security.
The conference will explore these questions and more. An exciting line-up of speakers will deliver short, engaging talks that will be followed by interactive workshops. Participants will join one of these presenters and others who are both passionate and knowledgeable about poverty and food security, whether in our community or elsewhere in the world. The aim of the workshops, and the conference altogether, is to develop plans of action that can be carried forward to affect real change.
This will be a great networking opportunity – a variety of organizations will be on hand to provide information about career and volunteer opportunities.
The one-day event is geared towards youth 16-30, but anyone with an interest in food security and global poverty is encouraged to attend. The conference will be held on Saturday, October 15 at UBC. Check-in begins at 8.30am at Hebb Theatre, 2045 East Mall at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
