Author of the book "Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle of the World's Food System" Raj Patel will be visiting the campus of UC Davis in March, to discuss the book and be a part of a variety of campus events. I think the opportunity to reflect our perspective on the topic through a collaborative design project could be a great way to access and activate the voice of our local, regional and even national community. I am personally very concerned about the topic and would love to focus design research on such an important social cause.
Considering the campus community will be focusing on the topic, I think this could be a great opportunity to be involved in a community-wide discussion and the possibilities for creating something meaningful could be quite good!
I am not quite sure where I might fit into this project but I would like to explore the content and find my way.
