Join us for this dynamic webinar! Explore with us the way towards a cooperative and community-led approach to regional resilience and climate action through food sovereignty!
About the Event:
This webinar aims to bring together food sovereignty advocates, progressive farmers, environmentalists, and cooperative and local economy activists, as well as interested members of the general public. Through open conversation and discussion of a draft paper, we will explore how food sovereignty and community climate action can strengthen the resilience of our local places.
This webinar is part of the project Climate Emergency Economy – organised by GEF with the support of Green House Think Tank, Wetenschappelijk Bureau GroenLinks, Green Foundation Ireland, and the Foundation for Environment and Agriculture. The project explores policies required in ‘hard-to-reach’ sectors for Europe to reach zero carbon. In 2021, activities are centred around three key pillars: agriculture, hydrogen, and transport infrastructure and trade.

• Fergal Anderson – Small farmer and chair of Talamh Beo, The Irish Landworkers Alliance; formerly at Via Campesina Brussels
• Dr. Oliver Moore – Researcher and communicator with ARC 2020
• Jennifer McConnell – Food Sovereignty Researcher, former CEO of Irish Seed Savers Association
