Food Systems in Transition – World Food System Summer School 2019

The question of how to feed the world while considering human health, the environment and social wellbeing is one of the defining challenges of our time. From changes in land use to dietary shifts, contemporary transitions in the food system have profound implications around the globe.

World Food System Center will hold its 2019 Summer School: The course will run for two weeks, between 17 August and 01 September 2019, in Rheinau, Switzerland. 

Join a community of motivated and like-minded students, researchers, and practitioners from around the world to explore how to build sustainable food systems in times of rapid change. Our 2019 summer school will be hosted on the “Gut Rheinau”, one of Switzerland’s largest and oldest organic farms. Experience food systems and production first hand, being immersed in a modern, socially integrative food system.
