Universities Fighting World Hunger Summit calls for poster abstracts by Dec. 31
The World Food Center at UC Davis is hosting the Universities Fighting World Hunger (UFWH) Summit in March 2021. The theme “One Health. One Planet” was conceived before the pandemic, but the conversation could not come at a more crucial moment as the world continues to teeter on the precipice of a climate crisis and the risks of food insecurity have increased exponentially. Summit presenters and panelists will speak to a broad array of topics covering human health, the planet, and their inherent connectivity.
Students, faculty, staff and community organizations are invited to submit an abstract for a virtual poster presentation in one of three tracks:
- One Health. Posters that share initiatives and research to reduce the burden of hunger and improve population health outcomes at the global, national, community and campus levels. Topics can include root causes of hunger, homelessness, poverty, nutrition, and creative and innovative strategies and solution
- One Planet. Posters that share initiatives and research to respond to the climate crisis, particularly as it relates to agricultural practices and changes to food systems that reduce impacts from climate change at the global, national, community and campus levels, emphasizing creative and innovative strategies and solutions.
- Convergence. Posters that share initiatives and research demonstrating converging impacts by addressing intersections between human and planet health.
Abstracts are due Dec. 31, 2020. Instructions for submitting an abstract can be found at https://worldfoodcenter.ucdavis.edu/sites/g/files/dgvnsk5046/files/files/page/UFWH_Call%20for%20Poster%20Abstracts%202021_Final.pdf
