On September 5, 2018 at 8:30 am, the Centre for Sustainable Development, in collaboration with Équiterre and Nourrir la santé, will be hosting a breakfast conference entitled Local and organic food in public institutions – Inspiration from Danish and American models.

Local and organic food procurement is the norm among hospitals, schools and daycares in Copenhagen (Denmark) and in the United States.

Join us to hear about how these public institutions managed the transition and what their principal success factors were.

Through brief presentations, we will also discuss current food procurement practices in Quebec’s public institutions and what levers are necessary in order to make a similar transition.

Important: The conference will be in English and in French.
