5th Annual Yale Food Systems Symposium

We are excited to present the Fifth Annual Yale Food Systems Symposium (YFSS): Centering Resilience. The symposium will bring together experts from across the general food community, and across Yale's community to discuss the importance of sustainability and resiliency in food systems.

This conference

grows out of graduate student organization from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, a graduate school that prioritizes both academic research and applied professional development. As such, the aim of the YFSS is to provide a space where researchers, practitioners, theorists, and eaters can come together to answer the pragmatic question: what is the optimal approach path to a just, sustainable food system? This is an effort by students, and for students, in the broadest sense of the word. The YFSS privileges new ideas that push the conventional boundaries of food systems thinking, and as such seeks to highlight emerging research, innovative projects, non-traditional collaboration, and truly interdisciplinary thinking.

The symposium will take place on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24.

Hey Everyone!
We’ll also need volunteers for the event. Taking on a volunteer role means guaranteed access to both days of the symposium AND all the food. Fill out the following form, and look out for a follow-up email! Deadline for signup is February 12th.
