Food for Thought and Action: A Food Sovereignty Curriculum | Grassroots International Food for Thought and Action: A Food Sovereignty Curriculum is a remarkably useful popular education tool. It offers a practical way to strengthen a growing food sovereignty movement that includes consumers, farmers, environmentalists and faith communities. Building from the experiences of literally millions of grassroots activists world-wide, Food for Thought and Action challenges us to fix our broken food system.– Michael Pollan, Author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and The Botany of Desire It's been said that "you are what you eat." In the face of a global food crisis, it's clear that we've been forced to swallow far more than what's on our plates. Our global food system is terribly broken, with nearly a billion hungry people around the world. Food for Thought and Action: A Food Sovereignty Curriculum | Grassroots International

Healthy Schools Campaign We all know the adage about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure, and in the case of air quality in schools, it may be even more than that. Dave Blake and Rich Prill, two Indoor Environmental Quality experts based in the Pacific Northwest, focus on ensuring schools have the tools they need to put that idea into action by ensuring that schools are safe and sustainable, with air free of contaminants and irritants. Students miss about 12.8 million school days annually because of asthma and asthma-related issues, adding another layer of importance to the already vital need for clean air and proper ventilation in schools. Blake, of the Northwest Clean Air Agency over in Mt. Vernon, Wash., and Prill, a Building Science and IEQ Specialist based in Spokane, Wash., will be leading an “Indoor Air Quality Walkthrough” Webinar on February 26 at 1:30 p.m. EST, part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Tools for Schools” educational webinar series.
