MSC welcomes Jane Rabinowicz, Executive Director of USC Canada — Seeds of Survival, in a public lecture entitled, «Learning from the field: Farmer-led solutions for food sovereignty, climate resilience and sustainability of small scale agriculture.»

The public is welcome to attend.

There will be light refreshments starting at 11:45AM, and the lecture will begin at 12:00PM. (Rumour has it, there will be samosas!)

In 2016, Rabinowicz was named to the Global and Mail's 53 most influential people in Canadian food for her work in seed security in Canada. And in 2017, she was profiled by CBC as part of a six-part documentary series called «WE ARE CANADA,» that celebrates the next generation of passionate Canadian changemakers.

Ms. Rabinowicz works with USC Canada promoting vibrant family farms, strong rural communities, and healthy ecosystems around the world. With engaged Canadians and partners in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, USC Canada supports programs, training, and policies that strengthen biodiversity, food sovereignty, and the rights of those at the heart of resilient food systems – women, indigenous peoples, and small-scale farmers.

We hope you'll join us.
