Food, Complexity, and Learning: Using Design to 'Ecologize' Gastronomy

In this presentation, University of Gastronomic Sciences professor David Szanto will discuss how the principles of design can help us understand the dynamics of complex food systems. Examples from classroom experiences will show how different design practices enable students to think and act ecologically when it comes to developing solutions to local food issues.
