Food for Thought and Action Series – Australia
How can we grow the agriculture and food systems of the future to regenerate the health of humans, cultures, animals and our planet?
Based on principles that are socially just, ecologically sustainable and culturally sensitive, a growing food movement is redesigning food systems – from the farm to the table.
Join local food system advocates and international food systems expert, agroecologist and author Eric Holt-Gimenez from Food First to discuss the opportunities and challenges in bringing together farmers, food-workers, grassroots organizations and food citizens to galvanize the global food movement.
