2021 Conference Opening: A Decade of University Action for Zero Hunger

In this panel discussion, faculty and students from UC Davis and Earth University will share their visions and perspectives on how to create collaborative work with different universities across the globe in addressing the SDG #2 Zero Hunger goal, with a focus on teaching and learning, extension, student activism, and research. They will discuss the steps that the two universities have taken so far to build their institutional partnership on SDG2. This initial model has the aim to create spaces to develop solutions on a global scale to achieve SDG2 by 2030. The panelists will share plans to develop a collaborative exchange and training opportunity for students from the two universities, which will focus on student-led farms. A space will be provided for the presenters and audience to share ideas and answer questions concerning future collaborations.
