Choose Food Symposium
November 5, 2018 - November 8, 2018
The symposium is geared toward researchers, students, professionals and conscious consumers and will cover environment and resources, food chain labor, animal welfare, public health and community well-being, and farmers, ranchers and fishers. The program will examine the ethical issues associated with food and agriculture by sharing the framework for ethical assessment of food products.
The Choose Food Project is an initiative of the Global Food Ethics and Policy Program at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and the Bloomberg School of Public Health. The project aims to guide actors throughout the food value chain to make, market, and choose products more ethically. The project is developing a framework for ethical assessment of the food system, as well as educational resources and cutting-edge digital tools about food ethics.
The Choose Food team of experts will discuss core ethical commitments that set parameters for ethics in the production, marketing, and purchasing of food. Plus, hear from celebrated food system leaders who will identify opportunities for ethical improvement of the food system.
