The ANH Academy teamed up with a group of London-based school students who employed geospatial methods to map their local food environments. Find out about the work and view the maps!
Join us in London to hear about a recent public engagment initiative between the ANH Academy and Grey Coat School, in which 6th form students expored and mapped their local food environments. Chris Turner, who leads the ANH Academy Working Group on Food Environments, will introduce a session whereby the students will present their geospatial maps; highlighting the main findings, reflecting on the exercise, and discussing what can be learnt from employing food environment research methods to better understand food systems and diets.
The ANH Academy Week relocates each year in order to lower barriers to entry for the global community of researchers, practitioners and policymakers in agriculture-food systems, nutrition and health. Janet Hodur explores why India is a fitting host for this year's event.
Are you presenting at the upcoming ANH Academy Week in Hyderabad? Or would you just like to improve your presentation skills? This is a session for you!
I would be grateful if you could circulate this information among your students and colleagues. This will be particularly interesting for students and practitioners working on agriculture, food and nutrition in low and middle-income countries.
