Campus Global Theme Schedule of Events Now Live

Announcing the 2020-21 Campus Global Theme Schedule of Events

Beginning this month and continuing for the rest of the year, UC Davis and local organizations will host a range of events affiliated with the 2020-21 Campus Global Theme

The Campus Global Theme program identifies a topic linked to one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and engages the entire UC Davis community in related discussion, learning, discovery, and action. The inaugural Campus Global Theme Food for Thought: Feeding Ourselves, Feeding the Planet, aims to explore the complexities surrounding the notion of “Food for Thought," bringing together the UC Davis community in this exploration.

The 2020-21 calendar of events boasts more than 25 programs, including documentary screenings, field trips to farms in the Sacramento region, research presentations, and forums. Events consider the complexities and importance of food, bringing attention to a variety of topics ranging from nutrition to agriculture, economics to politics, and education to ecosystems, including:

  • Food as Medicine
  • Exploring Food System Career Pathways for Young People
  • The Politics of Food
  • Exploring the Cultural Diversity of Sacramento Region Farms
  • Cultivating Food and Inclusive Employment
  • How Local Food Policy Impacts UC Davis Students

The entire UC Davis community and general public are invited to participate in this campus dialogue surrounding food and consumption.
