Field notes for social change: a conversation with Raj Patel, Community Food Centres Canada

Online
December 8, 2015

12:00-1:00 p.m. EST

Join us on for a webinar that explores how social change actually happens. We are thrilled to welcome Raj Patel’s lessons from the front lines of the food justice movement. Raj Patel is an award-winning writer, activist, and academic. He has worked for the World Bank and WTO, and protested against them around the world. His first book was Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System and his latest, The Value of Nothing, is a New York Times best-seller. CFCC's Nick Saul will moderate the discussion.

This webinar interrogates the question: where does social transformation come from? We’ll explore successes and failures of various facets of the food movement in the global North and South, and we’ll unpack how different actors — individuals, organizations, businesses and governments — have championed change.

How Much: Free!
