Interdisciplinary food systems training to address global food security challenges
We are a collaboration of five higher education institutions pioneering a learning community and resource on food systems thinking. Available to all post-graduate students at the participating institutions, IFSTAL – Innovative Food Systems Teaching and Learning programme – fosters a range of cross-disciplinary, intra- and inter-institution activities, as well as skills for taking new learning into the workplace.
Through IFSTAL we aim to build a cohort – and a community – of professionals from a wide range of post-graduate backgrounds with skills in applying critical interdisciplinary systems thinking to issues of long-term food security.
