"Food Sovereignty in the Sound Sound"
A presentation by IPE professor Emelie Peine
Wednesday, November 5th, 7-8 pm, Wyatt 109

Food Security and Food Sovereignty are both critical pieces to the whole of Food Justice, and this lecture and discussion will focus on Food Sovereignty, which is defined as "the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems."

Dr. Peine will discuss the origins of Food Sovereignty as a global movement, as well as local Food Sovereignty projects right here in the South Sound region. A discussion about Food Sovereignty and the University of Puget Sound will follow.
