Our bi-annual youth food journal, The Gathering: A Youth Perspective on Food Issues, aims to bring together a progressive youth vision and voice in the food system. Our objective is to create an accessible peer-reviewed journal of research, concepts, case studies, and arguments to help youth be recognized for their contribution to sustainable food system research. This platform hopes to also foster knowledge exchange with the broader food community.
Submissions for the 2018/2019 journal are now closed. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Gathering Youth Food Journal Volume 5Due date: February 4th 2022, 11:59pm EST The TYFPC’s Education Committee is calling for proposals for the fifth volume of our food journal, The Gathering. This year the theme is “cultivate,” and much like the definition, we are interested in proposals that speak to what we want to sustain, nourish, or grow. What relationships with the land will allow us to cultivate life-affirming futures? As we are a youth-centred food journal, submissions that touch upon this question in a critical, intersectional, and equitably informed way, and highlight food, are encouraged. Some other questions to consider are the following:
- What do you hope to cultivate in Toronto’s food landscape?
- What is currently being cultivated by yourself or others, particularly within your communities and neighbourhoods?
- Cultivating land requires preparation in order to grow crops, sometimes it means leaving the land as it is. What does land cultivation mean to you?
- What do you want to see sustained? What do you want to help grow and nourish?
