Northern Food Network Webinar Core Themes on Northern Food Security

The Northern Food Network (NFN), which was a network developed through Food Secure Canada in 2010 and ran for 5 years, is being revived with AICBR and we invite you to be apart of it.  We are proposing to host bi-monthly webinars (with teleconference options available) focused around some core themes of Northern food security. Given the current federal opportunities, these webinars will have a policy relevance and speakers from diverse areas of health, environment, agriculture, and food security will be invited to present. We are committed to making these webinars relevant, discussion-focused and action-oriented while maintaining flexibility, so themes may evolve as different priorities arise.
