Patricia Allen Featured Speaker in Barcelona

Excerpt from a press release issued by PUREFOOD on
December 4, 2012.

The PUREFOOD Network and the Food and Nutrition Observatory of the University of Barcelona played host to Beyond Divides: An International Forum on Contemporary Agri-Food Issues, held in Barcelona in November 2012.

The event featured contributions of leading international scholars including professors Patricia Allen (Marylhurst University, USA), Michael K. Goodman (King's College, UK), James Kirwan (Countryside and Community Research Institute, UK) and Jesús Contreras (Universitat de Barcelona, Spain).

With a mission of fomenting debate, exchange and collaboration, the forum featured various opportunities and learning formats, including thematic panels and roundtables on contemporary themes such as food justice, alternative food networks, food and nutrition security, tradition and innovation.

The event took place as part of an international thrust toward more collaborative work efforts and served to strengthen the academic and practical connections between Catalonia, Europe and North America.

PUREFOOD is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network designed to build capacity and knowledge around the critical issues that define the contemporary peri-urban foodscape, including, among others topics, food and nutrition security, public health, and sustainable urban and rural development.
