The Florida Food Policy Council has joined a partnership with The Climate Leadership Engagement Opportunities (CLEO) Institute for their second annual Climate and Food Policy Course. Additional partner organizations included Patel College of Global Sustainability, Urban Health Partnerships, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
From July 1-July 29, this 5-week course aimed to connect the dots between the climate crisis, food insecurity, and the policies that can mitigate greenhouse gases and protect vulnerable communities.
Experts from the field and prominent organizations led engaging classes to cover topics such as food and agriculture, civic engagement, equitable food policy, and extreme heat and agriculture.
The goal of this course was to help Floridians become more civically engaged in advocating for sustainable food and agricultural policies.
