Buckeye Summit

The Buckeye Summit, Convnening for Change, with the inaugural topic of Food Security. 

Thousands of Ohio families, 17.4 million U.S. households and nearly 1 billion people around the world don’t have enough to eat. This global problem demands collective action — and with leaders like you, Ohio State is uniquely positioned to have a major impact. Find out more about the four focus areas that will guide our discussion:

Farming and environment: From rural farmland to urban gardens, how can each community feed its citizens?

Health and nutrition: What's at stake when children don't have enough to eat?

Business and entrepreneurship: Can industry help feed the world?

Policy: How do government policies affect the issues that impact food security, from unemployment to lack of transportation?

The Buckeye Summit is a new paradigm for engagement. The summit is an interactive town hall, with break-out sessions and group discussions where you will contribute your energy, your insights, your passion and your ideas for tackling the complex issue of food security. We can’t wait for a great discussion. At the Buckeye Summit, you'll join Ohio State researchers and passionate students in discussing real solutions.
