UK Food Sovereignty: Building A Movement That Wins

Hot on the heals of the Food Sovereignty Gathering in Hebdon Bridge (October 2015), this session will focus on how we can build effective links between the wide variety of organisations working on food and farming issues, to ensure radical change for the better in the UK food system.

We will seek inspiration from practitioners who are achieving change from grassroots food supply for local communities (Organiclea), via building positive political relations with the Scottish Nationalist Party (Nourish Scotland), to working with Via Campesina at a European level to influence policy makers in Brussels (Andrea Ferrante). The Landworkers’ Alliance will outline its two pronged approach to policy change, before leading a discussion on how we can work more effectively together to bring about changes we need.
