Join the World Food System Summer School and connect with a community of motivated and like-minded students, researchers and practitioners from around the world who are committed to building sustainable food systems.  The 2018 summer school will take place in Abidjan, Bouaké, and a number of field sites. The majority of the course will be hosted at Hotel Mon Afrik in Bouaké, Côte d’Ivoire.

Open to graduate students and recent graduates. The course will be conducted in English, though some degree of proficiency in French is recommended. Further, participants can give feedback and ask questions in French. We are running a competitive application process. Participants from West Africa are particularly encouraged to apply.
