Date: Monday March 4th, 2013
Location: 280N York Lanes
Time: 10:00am to 3:00pm

Come and take action! 

Are you aware of food justice issues? Are your actions hurting disenfranchised people worldwide? Do you want to take action and make a difference here at York and beyond?

The purpose of this food unconference is to create a forum for students, staff, and faculty to have open conversations around social justice, human rights, sustainability, and food issues. The end goal is to create opportunities to work together in order to take action both personally and here at York University.

An unconference uses ‘open space technology’ to host a conference that allows participants to determine the agenda themselves at the start of the day within the scope of a particular topic. So YoU set the agenda!

Outline for the day:

9:30am to 10:00am – sign up and welcome
10:00am to 11:00am – introduction and setting the agenda
11:00am to 2:00pm – breakout sessions
2:00pm to 3:00pm – conclusions and wrap-up

This unconference is brought to you through the joint efforts of:

  • IRIS – Institute for Research and Innovation in Sustainability
  • the Centre for Human Rights
  • the President’s Sustainability Council

Lunch Sponsor: York University Food Services (CSBO):
