As a collaboration of seven higher education institutions, IFSTAL is pioneering a learning community and resource to enable a step change in food systems thinking. We have already built a large and diverse community of over 1200 food systems thinkers, including students from a wide range of backgrounds, alumni and workplace practitioners. IFSTAL is available to all postgraduate students enrolled at the participating institutions. The programme equips participants with the skills to apply critical interdisciplinary systems thinking to issues of long-term food security through fostering intra- and inter-institution activities, and the means for taking new learning to the work-place.
