Spring 2021: Seasons of Social Justice
At EE 101, the class sessions, readings and assignments aim to guide students to develop food-systems intelligence— a personal understanding of how the diverse facets of the food system relate and depend on one another, especially one's own role as a participant in the food system and how individual and collective choices, actions, behaviors, policies and public and private interests affect it.
Through this year’s theme, we will grow our understanding from the ground up, learning from leading thinkers and doers about how we can transform the food system to become healthier and more sustainable and just. We will sit with histories and questions about inequities and power in food systems and highlight evidence-based innovations and entrepreneurial solutions throughout the semester.
Through the course of EE 101, students will develop creative and effective plans at an individual, local, national, or global scale to improve, and possibly transform our food system.
