Welcome to the Sustainable Food Teach-Out: Dr. Michaela Zint and Benjamin Morse

Dr. Michaela Zint and Benjamin Morse introduce learners to the course on food sustainability.

In this Teach-Out, we will explore the complexities of the food system and how we can, individually and collectively, create food habits that reduce our impact on climate change. Together with the two co-hosts for the Teach-Out, Dr. Michaela Zint and Benjamin Morse, you will explore the impact of 1) what we choose to eat, 2) where we source our food from, 3) how we can manage and reduce food-related waste, and 4) food justice, access, and equity.

Dr. Michaela Zint is an Arthur Thurnau Professor at the University of Michigan’s School for Environmental Sustainability, College of Literature, Science & the Arts, and School of Education. She is also the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the School for Environment and Sustainability. Michaela’s bio here.

Benjamin Morse is a Senior Design Manager in the Office of Academic Innovation at the University of Michigan and a graduate from the School for Environment and Sustainability and the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. Benjamin’s bio here.
