SITES' LEADERS MESSAGE

If you are passionate about food and sustainability, come to Seattle with us! We are Sondia and Joyce, co-site leaders for the trip on sustainable agriculture and food systems. Food is at the same time a major part of our everyday lives and one of the biggest generators of waste, and the food industry plays a major role in climate change and health and class disparity. We will be exploring ways in which food systems can be improved on various levels, including but not limited to the environment, policy, advocacy, and social justice. If any of this sounds interesting, apply! We promise you’ll make cool friends:))
