  Defining Food Systems for Sustainable Development: Global to Local Partnerships  
(Special Event)

Defining Food Systems in Rural Communities

The UN Secretary-General has called for a Food Systems Summit to unleash the power of food and deliver progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In preparing for the Summit, Virginia Tech students will join a diverse range of stakeholders to discuss sustainable food systems in rural communities. As part of the organized Food Systems Summit Dialogues, the event will convene young adults to explore challenges in food systems, and will reflect on the outlined objectives of the Summit.

Recognizing that food is a common thread linking all 17 SDGs, given the interconnected economic, social, and environmental dimensions of food systems, the dialogue aims to identify the challenges of equitable food distribution in rural communities by examining the agricultural value chain that encompasses the flow of products, knowledge and information.

"Defining Food Systems in rural communities" is an official Food Systems Summit Dialogue in preparation for the UN Food Summit 2021 and is facilitated by UN Food Systems partner, Blue Ridge Impact Consulting, as part of Virginia Tech Department of Political Science experiential coursework.
