Event description

Description

SYDNEY IDEAS CO-PRESENTED WITH THE SYDNEY ENVIRONMENT INSTITUTE AND SYDNEY POLICY LAB

In response to the social inequities and ecological damage wrought by an industrial and globalised food system, a growing food movement that champions food and farm justice, sovereignty and democracy is driving social, economic and political change across the globe. What structures and mechanisms are needed to ensure that those most affected by food and farm insecurity in Australia are heard? How do we strengthen social and political networks to sustain transformative public policy making in food and agriculture?

Join international expert Eric Holt-Giménez as he explains how social movements are addressing the economic and political structures that currently work against sustainability.
