Are you a food producer, organic farmer, allotment holder, anti-supermarket campaigner, rural food worker, food activist, health worker or food lover? Are you setting up a food co-operative, buying food from a local producer, volunteering in a community garden? Then join us to develop the global movement for food sovereignty here in the UK.
Food sovereignty is an alternative food system that creates practical, sustainable and democratic solutions to the failed industrialised food model. The current system dispossesses small-scale food producers and creates health and environmental crises while increasing the profits of big corporations. Yet in every continent, millions of producers and consumers are involved in trying to make their vision of a better food system a reality.
This event is about planning the future of the movement for food sovereignty in the UK. We want to:
• Celebrate the struggle for food sovereignty already underway in the UK, in Europe and globally;
• Strengthen local actors to take control of their food system;
• Build a sense of common purpose and understanding, as well as a joint agenda for action;
• Inspire and motivate people and organisations to work together.
Another food system is possible. Let’s make it happen!
Free campsite space and help with travel costs for long journeys is available.
See www.foodsovereigntynow.org.uk for details.
