David Suzuki, food justice expert Utcha Sawyers and J.B. MacKinnon, author of The Once and Future World and co-author of The 100-Mile Diet, will lead the conversation about the impacts of modern food systems and farming practices on our health, land and food security. The event will also feature a special performance by poet Tanya Davis.

Register your senior high school, college or university today!

The NFB film Island Green will provide background and context for the conversation. Screen it in advance with your students or peers and use the complementary resources to brainstorm questions for David, J.B. and Utcha before the event. We'll select eight to 10 questions and then invite students from across Canada to ask questions during the live webcast.

The event coincides with the David Suzuki Foundation's Blue Dot Tour and Right to a Healthy Environment campaign. In keeping with the tour and campaign's goal of ensuring that all Canadians have the right to clean air, water and food, the conversation will explore the ways in which we as individuals and as a nation can ensure that every person has access to the basic ingredients for a life of health and dignity. Let's create the food systems we want for ourselves and future generations!
