Tag Archives: Edible Education 101

We live in the SF Bay Area, a  NIRVANA for food-lovers! There are classes, professional leadership seminars, food hackathons, tours, gourmet field to table extravaganzas, and also this wonderful opportunity made available by Alice Waters and Will Rosenzweig, leaders in thoughtful eating, great food, and sustainability.

  • CLASS: Edible Education 101
  • DATE: Begins Wednesday 1/17
  • Details below:

It is my privilege to join Alice Waters to co-host Edible Education 101 again this semester.  This uniquely UC Berkeley course, now in its seventh year, is available to undergraduates, graduate students and the local community and is live-streamed and archived online. EE 101 meets Wednesday evenings (6:15 to 8pm Pacific Time) beginning January 17, 2018. We’d encourage you to share this invitation with friends who are passionate about shaping a healthy and regenerative food system.

Once again we are honored to hear from the thoughtful, informed and provocative voices shaping and leading the food movement. The course explores current food issues against a backdrop of systems thinking, ethical action, creativity and innovation. This semester we will also showcase the work of inspiring, emerging leaders who are making a difference in diverse disciplines. Our intent is to help our community of learners develop “food systems intelligence” — a way of seeing and acting in our local and global food ecologies with clear intent and an understanding of our personal and collective impacts. We also hope to build a bridge for students to envision how they can apply themselves personally and professionally in the world of food. Here is the schedule of guest lecturers and topics (with special surprises in the works). All classes are on Wednesday evenings at 6:15 pm PST.        Our teaching team will be creating a weekly newsletter with a link to the class readings and video archive. Each edition will preview the coming class content and will provide a recap of the prior week’s highlights. We will also post weekly invitations (space permitting) to obtain a ticket to attend the class in person, on campus. If you received this email from a friend or colleague and would like to join the class and get weekly updates, click here. If you do not wish to receive weekly course updates or invites, you can opt-out by clicking on the link at the bottom of this email.  We look forward to seeing you in class! With all good thoughts, Will Rosenzweig Social Impact Fellow Special thanks to Berkeley Haas Center for Responsible Business, The Edible Schoolyard Project, Food Venture Lab, and Steve Silberstein for the generous support and collaboration that makes this course possible and broadly available.
