How do we create learning environments that skill up people to effectively respond to today’s global challenges? 

IFSTAL is unique. It brings together leading academic minds in food systems thinking with the workplace to create an interdisciplinary, workplace-orientated model to build the community of future researchers, practitioners, campaigners and advocates for change: ‘food system analysts’.

We see this as a model from which we can draw lessons applicable to the plethora of ‘global challenges’ we face today: health and wellbeing, sustainable cities, poverty alleviation, clean air, water, sanitation and energy systems to name a few.

This showcase event will be an opportunity to share and discuss experiences of a multi-institution collaboration for interdisciplinary teaching and learning.

We will reflect on the successes and learning from the 3-year HEFCE Catalyst Fund IFSTAL Programme and look to the future of food systems higher education.
