Join us on Feb 17!
If you eat, this conference is for you: Changing Climate, Changing Appetites
Students, colleagues and friends on campus and in the community, please do register and join us at Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall on Friday, Feb 17, for a day of debate and solutions-oriented discussions on how to deliciously nourish ourselves and the global population while protecting our Earth and its finite resources.
Discussions will feature 5-minute quick takes by each panelist, with the remainder of each panel dedicated to audience Q&A. We will explore behavioral science and how we can change our appetites, secrets of making these foods delicious and crave-worthy, the role of marketing and advertising in the effort and the power and politics of the food/ag/hospitality sector.
As background reading, we offer the World Resources Institute report, Shifting Diets for a Sustainable Food Future (PDF), co-authored by Timothy Searchinger, a research scholar/lecturer at PU and co-founder of our Princeton Studies Food Council, which provides the framework of our conference.
And come hungry. For the first time, this conference will feature a lunch-and-learn menu - in partnership with Chef Jerry Luz and his colleagues at Campus Dining -- for registered attendees. Lunch will include a tasting orchestrated by Professor Dan Rubenstein, so bring your smartphone to participate in the instant survey as you sample.
The conference is free to participants, but space is very limited; sign up now to reserve your chair and your lunch. Please plan to stay the day if possible - the panels build on each other and something you heard in a previous panel may spark a question for another. And if you must cancel, please let us know as soon as possible; someone else will want your spot. Driving and parking directions here. Questions? Write Karla Cook.
And thank you from all of us at Princeton Studies Food. We are inspired by your interest and enthusiasm for this public service project.
