We were so happy that Ryerson was part of the N3Con 2019 media conference in Hong Kong. The students were super engaged, asked smart questions and really made an effort to connect with and learn from fellow attendees, most of whom are working professionals.  It's an amazing opportunity I wish I had been given as a student journalist. We were all impressed by the quality of the winning project produced by last year's Ryerson crew, and look forward to seeing this year's work. Hope to see another group of talented Ryerson students again at N3 2020!

You will work with local journalists and community members and meet chefs, restaurateurs, activists, policy makers, food writers, agriculturalists, researchers and more as you experience the multiple ways in which food impacts society and culture.
