On March 1st 2016, the NBEN, in partnership with the NB Food Security Action Network and Farm to Cafeteria, hosted a provincial conference to explore the links in between food security, education and sustainability.

Food security is a new theme for the Sustainability Education Alliance of New Brunswick (SEA-NB), but was extremely well received. Over 80 participants representing schools, school districts, postsecondary institutions, NGOs, local food banks, and provincial government departments attended the event.

Over the course of the day, the participants got the chance to hear about some of the exciting educational initiatives around food security that are happening in the province, played and learned outside with the “Great Minds Think Outside” team, and left with heads full of ideas on ways to expand education around food security in NB following great discussions and a fantastic keynote address from Michael Carr.

Thanks to our partners and to everyone else that contributed to the planning and organizing of the event.
