Join us for the following World Food Day 2023 events:

KEYNOTE Wednesday October 18 from 6-8 p.m. at the Frost Institute for Chemistry and Molecular Science, Room 115

"Your Diet Makes a Difference"
Speaker: Dr. Jennifer Jacquet  Abess Center for Ecosystem Science Policy
Prof. Jennifer Jacquet is interested in the social science and policy dimensions of industrial fisheries, aquaculture, as well as meat and dairy production. Dr. Jacquet earned a Ph.D. in natural resource management and environmental studies from the University of British Columbia, and her dissertation was titled "Fish As Food in an Age of Globalization." Today, she has several projects on how the animal agriculture industry engages in climate politics, and published an op-ed in the Washington Post noting, "The meat industry is doing exactly what Big Oil does to fight climate action." She will give a broad overview of the global animal food system and its environmental impacts, focusing in on climate change, climate politics, and water use. RSVP now.
