In light of COVID-19 and with respect to the health and safety of all involved, the Urban Food Systems Symposium, is going virtual. While we regret that presenters and attendees won’t get valued face-to-face time this year, we feel this is the best possible option for everyone. Thanks to innovative technology, this can’t-miss event will continue to offer attendees high-quality professional development content at a lower cost, access to ALL Symposium content and new ways to connect and collaborate with colleagues across the country and the World. For more information on what to expect, please visit our website.

We would like to invite students, as well as, leaders in academic research and extension, community organizers and changemakers in urban food systems and agriculture to register for the 2020 Urban Food Systems Symposium held virtually on Wednesdays in October.

Attendees will share and gain knowledge on urban food systems and their role in global food security. This symposium includes knowledge on: urban agricultural production, local food systems distribution, climate change, nutrition, urban farmer education, urban ag policy, planning and development, food access and justice, and food sovereignty.
