Sustainable Dining with Wayne Roberts! February 9, 2011Posted by gfsa in Countdown to P2S.
The count down to P2S is on! That is…Pathways 2 Sustainability: Food, Fuel and Finance, Feb 22-23 in Red Deer, AB.
GFSA is thrilled to have contributed to the planning and support for this innovative conference that will challenge our thinking around sustainability and push us toward solutions that consider the impacts of food, fuel and finance. We are especially excited that Wayne Roberts will be joining us as a key note and panel speaker. Wayne will be the keynote speaker after the Sustainable Gourmet Dinner on day 1 of the conference, Feb 23rd.
Are you thinking that a talk on food, fuel and finance isn’t your dream way to end a delicious locally-sourced meal during a mid-winter conference on sustainability? Think again! Going light on the world’s resources means going light on ourselves: that’s the deep belief of after-dinner speaker Wayne Roberts, who helped launch the green economics movement across North America with his 1995 book called Get a Life! and who has adapted that philosophy after ten years as manager of one of the world’s leading food policy councils. You may lose your opportunity for a post-dinner snooze, but like the dinner itself, you’ll enjoy the light fare afterward. Now how can someone possibly make food fuel and finance reasonably entertaining? Figuring that out may just be key to the mystery of how we promote sustainability!
