Oct 6: Food Freedom Through Climate Change Activism

Sustainable Connections is a local nonprofit that works to create thriving communities through innovative ideas, collaboration, and action. Sustainable Connections work with a diverse network of local stakeholders, including community members, government and non-profit allies, and local businesses, to facilitate a variety of sustainability and social equity initiatives that improve the quality of life for all in Whatcom, Skagit, San Juan, and Island County, with a focus on the long-term health of the environment.  This year Sustainable Connections is celebrating 20 years of work in the community.

Sustainable Connections has five core programs: Think Local First, Food & Farming, Toward Zero Waste, Housing & Smart Growth, and Energy & Green Building. The Toward Zero Waste Program is joining us in this talk titled, ‘Food Freedom through Climate Change Activism” to teach about the connections between food waste and climate change, the Food Recovery Program and food waste reduction, and local resources for accessing free food.

The Environmental Speaker Series is free and open to the public. Talks are held each Thursday at 4:30 pm in Academic Instructional Center West, room 204. Paid parking is available in lot C. Or join us online on Zoom!
