Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) 2018 Forum: Pathways to Impact

Event Type: 
In-Person Meeting
Geographic Focus: 
June 19, 2018 - 9:00am to June 21, 2018 - 5:00pm

Spokane, Washington

Connecting a patchwork of disparate but complementary strategies toward healthier and more sustainable food systems requires continually re-evaluating our assumptions and untangling the vastly complicated drivers of those systems. As such, many of the topics explored at the 2018 Forum boil down to power. Racial equity, tribal sovereignty, industry consolidation, land use, and policy all play out in the relative health of people, land, water, climate, and animals.

This complex and tenuous political moment requires urgent action, but does not allow for many missteps. In order to get where we want to go, our understanding of the context surrounding the problems we seek to affect must be at once deep and broad. With little time to spare, we must learn as we go, continually reorienting as we seek and navigate pathways to impact in the food system.
