Carleton University faculty members (Peter Andrée, Patricia Ballamingie, and Irena Knezevic) extensively collaborate with the Laurier Centre for Sustainable Food Systems. Directed by Dr. Alison Blay-Palmer, UNESCO Chair on Food, Biodiversity, and Sustainability Studies (Wilfrid Laurier University), the centre conducts research on and supports initiatives focused on fair, environmentally regenerative, circular and diverse food systems. It also provides a home for several international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral collaborations.
