Food for Thought Series

The Food for Thought Series consists of free monthly workshops presented by members of the CCA community. 

The workshops reflect the depth and breadth of relevant topics such as sustainability, social responsibility, social justice, etc., with practical application in a real-world setting (conflict resolution, team dynamics, etc.).

We welcome engaging workshop proposals!

Topics may range from life skills such as bike maintenance techniques to a discussion about the use of civil discourse. You present or facilitate, or both, a meaningful session, and we handle the logistics -- including providing a free lunch.

Selection Process

Based on the completed Food for Thought Proposal, each session will be evaluated on the quality of the topic as it pertains to cultivating global and ethical citizenship through self-awareness, life skills, and meaningful discourse.


Proposed sessions are evaluated based on three main criteria:

  • Informative -- sharing relevant and meaningful information that resonates with your audience
  • Engaging -- being genuine through open-ended questions, personal anecdotes, and body language
  • Call to action -- inspiring and preparing the next generation of leaders

Examples of potential workshop topics

  • Bike-Riding for Dummies
  • What Does it Mean to be Socially Responsible?
  • How to Overcome Creative Blocks
  • Planning a Green Event or Exhibition, or both?
