Reducing Food Insecurities and Wastage: A Civic Engagement Lunch Talk Follow-Up
On April 6th, 2021, Associate Professor in Urban Planning and Policy Ning Ai presented at IPCE's virtual Civic Engagement Lunch Talk series. Her presentation was titled "Enhancing Community Awareness of and Participation in Reducing Food Insecurities and Waste."
In her talk, Professor Ai highlighted the connection between civic engagement and food system planning and presented her research supported by the Civic Engagement Research Award. Motivated by the general lack of community awareness about the extent and consequences of food consumption and disposal behaviors, this research develops community-specific planning references and an interactive web-based data dashboard for 77 Chicago communities.
