World Social Forum 2016: Let’s Talk About Food Sovereignty - Discussion workshop, Food Secure Canada

Montréal, Québec
August 12, 2016  

1:00 to 3:30 p.m.
Université McGill – Pavillon Burnside (Local 1B45) 805, rue Sherbrooke Ouest

As a pan-Canadian alliance of organizations and individuals working together to advance food security and sovereignty, we invite the public and experts to gather for a grand banquet of ideas at World Social Forum 2016.

We all have a role to play in the way we consume and produce our food. Whether you are a consumer at the end of the chain or you cultivate the resources that sustain us, building healthier, more just and sustainable food systems begins with sharing our visions.

Food sovereignty is an internationally recognized principle, wherein food constitutes a fundamental pillar of the health and vitality of individuals, communities, economies, and ecosystems.

Together, we will define the pillars of food sovereignty, along with speakers invited for the occasion. Participants will form discussion groups around themes in which they are interested. Throughout these discussions, we will identify policy solutions to promote food sovereignty.
