Food Sovereignty, Climate Action and Regional Resilience

June 29 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm IST

Conversations with leading advocates of food sovereignty and community climate action

WEBINAR:

FOOD SOVEREIGNTY, CLIMATE ACTION AND LOCAL RESILIENCE

“Imagining a co-operative, community-led approach to regional resilience”

Green European Foundation, with the support of Green Foundation Ireland and Cultivate, invite you to participate in the above online webinar from 15:30 to 17:00 on Tuesday 29 June 2021.

As always at our events, an important part will be the Q&A session which will allow full participation by those attending.

THEME

Our webinar (which is part of GEF’s transnational project on Climate Emergency Economy with Bulgaria, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) will include conversations with leading advocates of food sovereignty and community climate action, and will explore how we might strengthen the resilience of our local places.

The project builds upon the outputs of the 2020 project, ‘A Question of SCALE’ (SCALE also being an acronym for Supply Chains and Local Economies). The Position Paper developed in this project introduces and explores the potential of the Social and Solidarity Economy, Doughnut Economics, Just Transition, The Commons, Community Wealth Building and new co-operative approaches.
