Trans-atlantic partnership

The crisis facing our planet and food systems is global, but very often the effects and solutions are distinct and local. This unique international cooperation between three partners (see below) aims to build a coherent coalition of young leaders that understand our differences and can thus build upon what we share in common to deliver a global response.

News

The Transatlantic Partnership Project will be completed during 2012, with a Food Connections conference and a series of research and student/producer exchange activities, including supporting student participation in Rio+20.
