Workshop Proposal Deadline Dec. 22 for CA Higher Education Food Summit

You are invited to submit a workshop to the California Higher Education Food Summit 2015 from January 16th to January 18th!
This gathering will invite student government and organization leadership, staff program coordinators and directors, faculty and administrators as well as community food agency leadership to UC Santa Barbara to strengthen partnerships and share best practices to inform action steps toward fostering access, equity, and justice for all. The three day summit will include workshops, speakers, and activities of all levels for individuals to engage with critical issues while building skills and relationships to implement change on college campuses and in the surrounding communities. To register for the summit, visit this link.

Interested in submitting a workshop about food justice, equity, and access?
If you would like lead a workshop or discussion session, submit a proposal here. During the Summit, they are looking for ways in which participants can learn and engage in making a difference in their communities and would like to encourage interactive workshop sessions. Last day to submit is today, December 22nd at 11:59pm!

One of the goals of the Summit is to ensure participants are able to apply the knowledge and insights they gained throughout the weekend in the Sunday Action session. They will be choosing 3-4 actions at all levels to allow participants to create change. Some examples of actions would be a participant sharing their personal food journey on paper or video, signing a petition, participating in a town hall, or something that would move individual towards change. If you would like to submit an action, please contact Natalie Tran at nattran[at]ucsc[dot]edu.
