UFWH Annual Summit

March 25 - March 26

UFWH (Universities Fighting World Hunger) Summit Registration is now OPEN! The 16th Annual UFWH Summit will be held virtually March 25 & 26 under the theme One Health. One Planet.

The year 2021 will be about resilience and resurgence, both planetary and human, and our hope is the conference will provide attendees with tools, information, and knowledge to collectively forge ahead as solutionists.

Keynote speakers include:

  • William Dietz, Director of Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness at George Washington University
  • Dr. Rattan Lal, winner of the 2020 World Food Prize for developing and mainstreaming a soil-centric approach to increasing food production that restores and conserves natural resources and mitigates climate change
  • Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University’s Earth Institute

Interactive sessions feature speakers and panelists discussing health equity, food security, innovations for addressing climate change, the power of student activism and advocacy locally and globally, the benefits of food hubs, and the interconnectivity of health and planet just to name a few. University students, staff, faculty, administration, and community partners are invited to attend.
