As a transdisciplinary conference, we are always looking to bring new perspectives to the event. For the 2015 Summit, we're excited to partner with Vermont Law School's Center for Agriculture and Food Systems to increase collaboration from the law and policy community. We're in the process of developing a compelling theme for the Summit, which we'll announce via a call for presentations in September 2014. Please join our email list to receive a notification when it is released.
The Summit will include keynote addresses from food systems leaders, as well as panel discussions with scholars and practitioners. Unlike traditional academic conferences, the Summit is designed to optimize engagement between scholars across disciplines and practitioners outside of academia. As such, the Summit is open to the public, and we welcome participation from nonprofits, farmers, food business, government, and interested community members. All sessions include time for Q&A and engaged dialogue with the audience.

The Breakthrough Leaders Professional Certificate Program for Sustainable Food Systems will take place at UVM in June 2015. Participation in the Summit is included as part of the program.
