Global Campus Studio Productions: A collaboration between media production and journalism students from around the world.
Food for Thought is a series of 7 current affairs shows produced by journalism and media productions students at universities in 10 countries. Each year we pick a theme for our shows and the students produce stories and interviews related to that theme. This year's theme is food.
As well as watching the entire shows on Youtube or Facebook, you can click on the different categories and watch individual stories that the students produced.
