Executive Education Program in Sustainable Food Systems
The food system is complex and encompasses all aspects of sustainability: social, economic, and environmental. The Earth Institute Center for Environmental Sustainability (EICES) Executive Education Program in Sustainable Food Systems provides students with an educated and analytical lens through which to view this system. The Sustainable Food Systems Track provides students with a strong background in agroecology and the knowledge and skills to become sound decision makers in the growing field of Sustainable Food Systems.
Upon completing the Executive Education Program in Sustainable Food Systems, students will come away with an understanding of the interactions between social and environmental changes (e.g., population growth, climate change), food production, and food security within the context of ecological, economic, political, and social systems.
