The call for applications for the 2020 World Food System Summer School ‘Food Systems in Transition’ is now open. Participants become part of a community of motivated and like-​minded students, researchers, and practitioners from around the world.

Course Information

In the course, students explore together how to build sustainable food systems in times of rapid change. Our 2020 summer school will be hosted on the “Gut Rheinau”, one of Switzerland’s largest and oldest organic farms. Participants experience food systems and production first hand, living and working in a sustainable, socially integrative food system. The program immerses all in the fascinating world of food systems through field trips, fieldwork, group case studies, design thinking, guest presentations, role-​plays and simulations and creative reflection – all helping to build the knowledge and skills needed to tackle food system challenges. At the end of the program, participants will join the global community of 188 alumni across 54 countries, who offer a network for ongoing exchange.
