Report back from Nyeleni European Food Sovereignty Forum

Speakers: members of the UK Delegation

The Nyéléni Europe Forum for Food Sovereignty was held in Romania in October 2016 bringing together the voices of a broad range of people from across Europe with an international delegation that is interested in the future of agriculture and alternatives to neoliberal food policies and practices. In the face of the European referendum result, it is of particular importance that the UK is able to not only reinforce links with people in other European countries, but also reconnect the different constituencies within the UK public to each other. Our intention is not only to inform, but also to critically compare and, with examples, map the progress that the European food sovereignty movement has made since the first Nyéléni Europe Forum, Austria 2011. As we do this we will make an effort to contextualise this in global and historical contexts.
