As consumers, we are increasingly taking an active interest in where our food comes from and how that impacts the environment, our communities and our health. Local urban and peri-urban agriculture production is resurging, but how does this fit into our global food system and what are the challenges in securing a sustainable food system in our city and beyond? Join our panel of experts for a roundtable discussion that explores the future of food over the next 20 years in Calgary and beyond. Our speakers will address a variety of issues around food in southern Alberta, and how they fit into the global food system, including; urban agriculture, food security, food regulations, sustainable dining.
