The 2020 Asia Pacific Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics Conference (APSAFE 2020) will be held ONLINE in early December!
The Asia Pacific Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics (APSAFE) is very pleased to announce the dates and theme of the fourth international conference. We cordially welcome researchers, students, policy makers, community activists, practitioners, and anyone with an interest in the topics. This conference will be a great opportunity to expand your transdisciplinary network and deepen your understanding about a range of interesting research, approaches and initiatives, so join us.
The theme of this conference is "Supporting Sustainable Food Systems: Quality Food and Ethical Consumption". It is a necessary step forward to rethink and reconstruct approaches to agriculture and food production if we hope to make food systems more sustainable. New technologies in aquaculture, livestock production, and food processing surely present possible opportunities, but these approaches also raise a wide range of ethical questions. This conference will explore the ethical dimensions of quality food consumption and production, and examine possible food futures that may help the society address the numerous wicked problems present in our current food system.
We are calling for short papers to be discussed in the conference. This conference will be the first ever entirely virtual meeting of APSAFE, which will continue for a duration of two weeks. To foster mutual learning and generate new insights for a sustainable future, a non-real time format will be implemented that utilizes a business chat (Slack) and YouTube .You can participate in the discussion at any time you would like, without problems about time difference or data traffic.
The timeline for the conference is included below, further updates and details of the program will be announced on this website.
The APSAFE is a sister organization to the European Society for Agriculture and Food Ethics (EurSAFE).
