ORFC Event Coordinator Brittany Oakes picks out her must-see sessions at #ORFC22
How to pick just four sessions?!
What an incredible honour to learn from the community gathering over these next few days. I will be working mostly behind the scenes, but I know I will be catching up on sessions for weeks to come.
After getting involved in organising around COP26 this year and with a particular interest in international solidarity, I am especially looking forward to the sessions on COP26 and climate justice.
I think I will start with watching:
Friday, January 7th
COP26, UNFSS And The Ways We Work Together Internationally
Global Room 2
11:00 AM-12:30 PM
I am also very much looking forward to learning from this session:
Thursday, January 6th
Climate Justice Is A Distraction From Racial Justice – African Heritage Horticulturalism
6:00 PM-7:30 PM
The following workshop has a limit on numbers, but I very much look forward to catching the recording afterwards:
Wednesday, January 5th
Developing A Shared Theory Of Change For The Land Justice Movement
2:00 PM-5:00 PM
This session will be first come first served basis and has a capacity of 100 people so arrive early to make sure you get in!
LION and Shared Assets are also programming the justice room at this year’s ORFC. The justice room will be a dedicated safe space within the conference, for people who are oppressed, discriminated-against or marginalised within agricultural spaces to feel empowered, connect with each other and share knowledge.
Finally, I hope to start growing mushrooms this year, so I am really excited to join the live mushroom demo!
