Visionary Policy for Food System Transformation

Public policies matter for our food future. Join us Friday!

Join us to hear from special guests about how we can advance a coordinated policy platform for our region that brings together our goals and values for food, farming, fishing and forestry.

  • How do we best contribute to democratic transformation and governance of a New England food system rooted in racial equity, sustainability, and resilience by 2030?
  • What can we learn from and contribute to other regions, contexts, and broader international and intersectional perspectives that will strengthen our collective impact in the policy and governance arena?
  • What aspirational regional policy goals will have the greatest positive impact towards realizing our shared vision and values?
  • How can coordinated/connected local and state policies influence and advance our regional policy goals?

Food Solutions New England (FSNE) is a six-state regional network creating a healthy, just and resilient food system that works for everyone. The FSNE network is coordinated by the UNH Sustainability Institute in Durham, NH. The University of New Hampshire ranks #2 in the country among public higher education institutions for its sustainability efforts.

The FSNE network does not endorse or oppose specific candidates for elected office or proposed legislation. Instead, we seek to inform, educate and advocate for general policy ideas that align with the network’s stated values and vision for a just, sustainable and resilient regional food system. While FSNE is supported, in part, by the UNH Sustainability Institute, our activities do not reflect the positions of the University of New Hampshire, the University System of New Hampshire, or its Board of Trustees.
