Save the dates: Global-to-local Food and Climate Change

September 5, 2021 / Comments Off on Save the dates: Global-to-local Food and Climate Change

Sustainability Sustainability Events

Presented by the Institute for Science & Policy at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Environmental Sustainability Initiative at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies, and the Colorado State University System’s new Spur Campus, International Agriculture Program.

Climate change and global food systems are deeply intertwined. Land use, soil health, and water management, and energy production associated with agriculture account for more than 30% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, the impacts of climate change — higher temperatures, drought, rising sea levels, ocean acidification, and extreme weather — are posing challenges to our food supply and the livelihoods of millions.
Climate change is here, and it is already impacting how, where, and by whom our food is cultivated. We invite you to join us for Everything on the Table, a new series taking a global-to-local look at how climate change is shaping the global food system and reshaping Colorado’s role therein. Save the dates below and watch for registration details and more information on these sessions coming soon.
