This forum focuses on how cities can use food as a lever for climate change mitigation and the reduction of their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. Can cities change institutional food to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions? What are the opportunities and barriers, and how do we track success? What does it mean for cities and companies to adopt “cool food” pledges? How do demographics relate to food consumption and its environmental impacts? On April 28, join the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and guest speakers to explore these and other questions.
