3rd Annual Frugal Innovation Practicum
Author: Stephanie White
March 17, 2017
Service learning in Malawi, Africa June 25 - August 24, 2017
Hosted by MSU’s Global Center for Food Systems Innovation, the practicum involves a mix of online and in-person classes; two half-day Michigan-based field trips; and two weeks of hands-on field work in Lilongwe, Malawi.
While actively working towards advancing food security and improving livelihoods, students will develop a deeper understanding of food environments in urban Africa.
Working side by side their peers from Malawi’s Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources, students will engage food entrepreneurs in urban food markets to propose appropriate (or, frugal) solutions to food security challenges.
