Call for Proposals CFSC Conference


CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS

Fifth annual conference of the Community Food Security Coalition.
Taking Back the Food System: Strategies for Healthy Food, Farms, and 
Communities
Washington, DC October 6-9, 2001

Proposal deadline: Received by May 29

The Community Food Security Coalition seeks proposals for sessions at its 
annual conference in Washington, DC October 6-9, 2001.

Themes for workshops
  Healthy Food
  Healthy Farms
  Healthy Communities

Within each of these themes, workshop organizers are asked to focus 
presentations on ways in which to bring together stakeholders (coalition 
building); local models of success (best practices); or the politics of 
community food security. We also encourage proposals related to the food 
system in the Washington DC/Mid-Atlantic area,  as well as proposals tailored 
for a general interest audience. Approximately twelve workshop slots are 
available. 

Presentation format
We encourage innovative formats and interactive sessions, with adequate time 
for dialogue with attendees. We also encourage sessions that lead to a 
specific outcome, and that are linked to the activities of the Community Food 
Security Coalition, or building a food security movement. 

Here are some session formats to consider:
o   Panel presentations
o   Skills-building sessions that help participants develop their capacity 
for action in the project, organizing, media, or policy realms.
o   Debates
o   Discussion groups 
o   Workshops in which attendees actively participate  

Audience
Expect a very diverse audience in terms of occupation. They include 
anti-hunger activists, policy-makers, farmers, emergency food providers, 
faith-based community representatives, environmentalists, community based 
organization activists, community residents, community gardeners, 
nutritionists, extension agents, sustainable agriculture activists, food 
system and food security organizational representatives, chefs, 
researchers/academics, students, funders, and others engaged in building a 
sustainable food system. 

Session details
All sessions will be 90 minutes in length. Expect approximately 15-50 
attendees per session.

Format of proposals
Please use the following format in your proposal. 

1. Name of contact person, organization, address, city, state, zip, phone, 
e-mail.
2. Name and organization of other presenters in your session.
3. Type of session (see above)
4. AV needs (slide or transparency projector only)
5. Title of session and theme (Healthy Food, Healthy Farms, or Healthy 
Communities)
6. 200 word description of the presentation, including main points and goals. 
Explain what you would like the audience to learn. If your workshop is 
accepted, your description will be included in an edited form in the 
conference program.
7. Brief bios of presenters (one paragraph or less only). No resumes or 
multi-page CVs please.

You may mail, fax, or e-mail your proposal. Save your files in MS Word or RTF 
format.
