Capilano Universe: Travelling to Save the World's Gastronomical Traditions

Join us for another season of the Capilano Universe Lecture series!

The industrialization of the world’s food systems in the 20th century has propelled us into an era of convenience and comfort never seen before. This has threatened food sources and traditions while also endangering food sovereignty and indigenous foodways all across the globe. In this session, we will explore how your personal decisions as a tourist can contribute to the regeneration of local foodways and slow food movement, protection of the environment and empowerment of local communities.

He earned his MBA in Hospitality Marketing and a Master of Science in Tourism and Travel (2009).
