CEHBanner 2021ENG
Children's Environmental Health Collaborative Conference
March 24-25, 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Online via Zoom

The pandemic has brought to light many of the vulnerabilities in our systems in New Brunswick, including that of food security and food sovereignty. This has resulted in a growing interest in gardening and producing food at home and in knowing where our food comes from. But what does food sovereignty look like for New Brunswick? How can we have a positive impact on our food systems to help protect our children and communities?

Join us on March 24th and 25th to explore these questions and take part in a day filled with interesting presentations, workshops, strategies, and networking!
