Spotlight on Place-based Transformations Initiatives: Food Systems New England

Speaker: Curtis Ogden, Karen Spiller
This session will entail a closer look at Food Solutions New England (FSNE), a 12 year old network advancing a more just, sustainable, resilient and democratic regional food system in the Northeastern United States. We will consider the importance of network weaving and development, core values including equity, and structures/roles and core focal points (impact areas) in advancing change in the direction of a shared vision (in this case, the New England Food Vision).
Join Karen Spiller and Curtis Ogden, two of the founding members of FSNE and co-facilitators of the FSNE Network Leadership Institute and the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge for this exploration.
