Here's bit from the syllabus -
Food and Faith: the Spirituality of Sustainability
September 6 - October 22, 2010
The current "food movement" is really a cluster of movements and networks, such as organic food, slow food, food security, food sovereignty, food justice, public health concerns, food safety, small-scale farming, sustainable agriculture, relocalization, and on and on....
This course brings to that cluster of concerns a particular emphasis on social, cultural and environmental sustainability in dialogue with faith. The heart of the course moves beyond consumer concerns and choices to look at production, advocacy for change, and celebration, and to consider how they play out in the lives of our households and faith communities.
When they complete this course students will be equipped to:
1. Describe the key factors that make a food system sustainable and just.
2. Initiate changes in their own habits of consumption, production and preparation of food that contribute to a sustainable system.
3. Articulate to their communities of faith the theological and ecological reasons to work for change in food system policies and practices.
Please pass this along to anyone you think would be interested.
