Program Overview

 

International community organizers, BoldLeaders have teamed up with Growing Power, the Mazingira Institute, and Environmental Alertto deliver a one-year, trans-Atlantic partnership between adult leaders and professionals in Uganda, Kenya and the United States focusing on food security as it relates to urban and peri-urban agriculture.

 

A coalition of community organizations, businesses, universities, and political leaders will provide programming and Fellowship opportunities to facilitate the two-way exchange between the African countries and the U.S. to improve food security as it relates to the social, cultural, political, and economic factors in food production, equitable distribution, and non-degradable environmental practices.

 

Four international exchanges will take place during 2011. In July and November U.S. Fellows will travel to Kenya and Uganda for a two-week exchanges of substantive learning, fellowships, and knowledge sharing. In March and April and September and October the Kenyan and Ugandan Fellows, will travel to Colorado, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Washington DC for eight week Fellowships with local agricultural experts, nutritionists, food growers, policymakers and media personnel. At a final five-day summit in Washington D.C. the East African Fellows will meet with Professional Fellows from all over the world working on Fellowships around Climate Change, Education to Employment, and Policy.

 

BoldFood: Professional Fellows in Food Security is focused on the non-technical aspects of food system development. We are examining food systems and food security in a variety of ways including social, cultural, economic, political, and ecological. Additionally, we utilize the tools of cooking, urban planning, policy development, value addition, and market development to increase food security.

This program has been made possible by funding from the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs fund. We thank them for their generous support.
