Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Urban Food Systems
Gain a systems-level understanding of urban food systems and the cultural, political, environmental and economic roles within them through this online, interdisciplinary program.
Urban food systems have increasing importance in the world. Our current food system has supported a fast-growing population, economic development and urbanization worldwide. The world population is projected to reach 9.8 billion in 2050 and 80% will be living in cities. Because of this, we must answer the question about how to feed cities in a just, sustainable and culturally appropriate manner when faced with looming climate change, widening inequality and worsening world hunger problems.
