Abstract/Summary

Contemporary food systems feed billions of people, yet food insecurity, inequality and environmental degradation feature strongly. Food systems therefore offer opportunities for enhanced education as well as policy and practice. The ‘Interdisciplinary Food Systems Teaching and Learning’ (IFSTAL) programme was developed across five UK universities, producing a cohort of graduate professionals (‘food system analysts’) equipped with the skills, tools and capability to better understand and manage food system complexity for food security, environment and enterprise.
