Training Future Actors in the Food System

posted in: News | 0

IFSTAL is an interactive training programme designed to improve post-graduate level knowledge and understanding of the food system. The need to train people in food systems thinking in order to address the increasing number of fundamental systemic failings in the global food system is a critical challenge. We created the IFSTAL programme to train a cohort of graduate students to think and act beyond traditional disciplinary understandings of long-term food security issues and embrace more systemic approaches.

In a new paper published in Exchanges: the Warwick Research Journal we outline the rationale for the programme and provide a review of the first year (2015-2016). The paper is now available online.
