Deans’ Food System Challenge Kickoff
Join HLS Dean Martha Minow and keynote speaker Ayr Muir, founder and CEO of Clover Food Lab, in officially kicking off the 2015 Deans’ Food System Challenge. The Challenge invites creative and entrepreneurial students to develop innovative ideas to improve the health, social, and environmental outcomes of the food system in the United States and around the world.
Students will have the opportunity at the Kickoff to network with other like-minded folks at Harvard and begin exploring ideas and partnerships to apply to this challenge in one of four categories:
- Producing Sustainable, Nutritious Food
- Innovating in Food Distribution and Markets
- Improving Our Diet
- Reducing Food Waste
The Challenge is co-sponsored by Dean Martha Minow of Harvard Law School and Dean Julio Frenk of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
A variety of workshops and networking events will offer participants numerous opportunities to strengthen their idea, team, and ventures throughout the Challenge timeline. More information on the Challenge and programming can be found here.
Space is limited. Please register here.
