Food Sovereignty Convergence 23 – 24 October

Join us in Canberra on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th October 2017 for two days of debate, stories, analysis, sharing, strategising and planning, all in the cause of building a fair food system for all Australians! Farmers, consumer advocates, right to food activists, urban agriculturalists, educators, communicators, innovators – whoever you are, wherever you’re from – if you see yourself as part of Australia’s food sovereignty movement, this is for you!

The Food Sovereignty Convergence will begin on Monday 23rd October with a talk on ‘First Peoples Land, Food and Lore’ by Ngambri man Shane Mortimer. We will then move into a discussion about the global food sovereignty movement led by Fran Murrel, co-founder of MADGE, and AFSA President Tammi Jonas, who recently returned from the VIIth International Conference of La Via Campesina (the international peasant farmers’ movement) and meetings of the Food & Agriculture Organisation of the UN.
