IFHE plans to submit a statement to the United Nations Commission for Social Development 2021 and is inviting members to contribute.
Theme of the statement is “Socially just transition towards sustainable development: the role of digital technologies on social development and well-being of all”. We are looking for experts on home economics & digital technologies to contribute to the statement. The more aspects and perspectives we can add, the better. If you are interested, please send your contact details and background to Annette.email@example.com until 5 October 2020.
We have taken our in-person annual conference online with ZOOM! Although we regret that the Coronavirus pandemic will keep us from gathering face-to-face for an engaging conference experience in Baltimore, we are still providing you many opportunities to connect with one another and connect to interactive professional development sessions! The Virtual Conference is open to anyone, but you must be fully registered to participate.
donate now to become a Friend of FCS and your name will appear on a virtual wall on the AAFCS website and will be preserved for archival purposes to mark our 1st historic virtual conference. In addition, your name will be included in the Journal of Family & Consumer Sciences.
LAST CHANCE! If you are planning to attend the AAFCS Annual Conference and Expo in St. Louis, don’t miss out on the IFHE-US Cultural Evening, June 23 from 7-9 p.m. at the Hampton Inn – Gateway Arch (a short walk from the Hyatt). Experience genuine Syrian food and hear the story of a Syrian refugee who has started a catering business with the help of Welcome Neighbors STL. Welcome Neighbors STL organizes Supper Clubs where refugees can prepare and share their native foods as a way to raise funds for refugee families. Mawda Altayan started with the Supper Clubs and has now opened her own catering business, DamascusFoodSTL. Hear her story and taste her delicious food! The menu will include (all but the chicken are vegetarian):
Hummus with pita bread Baba Ganoush (grilled eggplant with fresh vegetables such as parsley, green peppers, tomatoes and pomegranate molasses and tahini served with pita bread) Chicken shawarma sandwiches (chicken, garlic cream, pickles, wrapped in pita bread) Yalangi (grape leaves stuffed with rice and vegetables) Baklava
