Description:

Climate change disrupts not only sea-levels and storms, but also how and where the world grows its food. While our carbon-intensive and global food network responds to a consumer demand that is no longer dictated by season, rising temperatures and changing precipitation patterns are transforming the world’s agricultural reality. How will the nations, states, and people respond?

Please join UConn Law’s Center for Energy & Environmental Law on April 26 for a conference devoted to the global, regional, and human impacts of climate change and food. Our discussion will span science, law, and policy with key presentations of new climate research affecting Connecticut and the globe; a keynote address by Dr. Katie Martin, Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at Foodshare; and panels convening legal academics, scientists, policy experts, farmers, and more.

Attendees will receive a continental breakfast, lunch, and an end-of-day networking reception featuring the famous UConn Dairy Bar ice cream. This event is free for students and the general public. The admissions fee for attorneys seeking CT CLE credit is $50.
