Food Policy and Regional Food Systems: Opportunities for Networking across Jurisdictions
February 11, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
Where does your local food policy council fit within the regional food system?
Would you like to play a stronger role in both your locality and at a regional
level but not sure how? Functioning with limited resources and volunteer
members, it can often be easiest for a food policy council to concentrate
locally. By understanding the role of local food policy councils within the
context of a regional food system, groups can network across geographies to
maximize impact and effectiveness of policy changes.
During this webinar, expert panelists will address a number of big picture
questions local food policy councils have about regional food systems,
- The role of local food policy councils within a regional network
When is it beneficial to connect across a region
- How to determine your “region” and what to do when definitions vary
- Best practices and challenges to organizing and building regional networks,
including resources and infrastructure needed
These issues will be addressed to show participants how networking across
jurisdictions can positively influence food system change. The webinar will
also include time for participant Q&A.
Food policy council coordinators and members, policy-makers, members of the
local and regional food system and food system advocates
