The Vancouver Summer Program (VSP) is a four-week academic program offered by various Faculties at the University of British Columbia, Canada for students from cooperating universities. The program provides the opportunity to take two academic courses while learning about Canadian practices and culture.
The Food and Well-being package covers 2 aspects i) Eating Food – An Everyday Experience and ii) Thoughtful Eating in a Globalized World.
Students who participate will experience a range of activities including visits to farms and markets; hear from experts who will talk about how they prepare and provide food; and teaching about foods from their culture. They will have visited a range of locations where food is purchased and consumed; have opportunity to think about how people make their food decisions, and consider the implications of different ways of eating that have an impact at local and global levels.
