March 19 Meeting: Engaging Across Diversity

Along with some regular business, we are welcoming special guest Darlene Seto to our March meeting to help stimulate a conversation on how the Vancouver Food Policy Council and other food system communities can meaningfully ‘Engage Across Diversity’.

Darlene is the program manager for SFU’s LiVWELL Research Group, where much of her work involves developing community-based research projects with diverse immigrant and community groups.  An advocate for ways to meaningfully bridge cultural inclusion and sustainability practice, she holds a MA from UBC in Resource Management and Environmental Studies, where her graduate work looked at the engagement of diverse publics in Vancouver’s community gardens.

Darlene will be presenting a summary of the results from her masters research work, with an emphasis on looking ahead to ways the food system and Vancouver Food Policy Council can continue to move forward on the meeting’s subject theme.

Join us March 19 6-8:30 PM, Town Hall Room, City Hall.
