Somerset Food Sovereignty Skillshare

Posted by Nicole Vosper almost 9 years ago

Sunday 16th October is World Food Sovereignty Day. Food Sovereignty is the right of peoples to democratically define their own food and agricultural systems without harming other people or the environment. For more of what Food Sovereignty means please se

Calling all food activists, growers, local foodies, transitioners and more from across Somerset  – you are invited to a day of ideas and action in Glastonbury on Sunday 16th October (Venue TBC) 10am – 4.30pm.

Sunday 16th October is World Food Sovereignty Day. Food Sovereignty is the right of peoples to democratically define their own food and agricultural systems without harming other people or the environment. For more of what Food Sovereignty means please see here.

The day will focus on:

*What is the Challenge?
Experienced activist and project manager at Somerset Community FoodLinda Hull has spent the last few years submerged in the world of food activism, meeting people from across the UK who are working to change our food system. She will give an overview of what she has learnt and will remind us all of the social and ecological effects of how we currently meet our food needs and why we need to make our local food systems visible.

*What is Food Sovereignty?
Nicole from Reclaim the Fields will introduce the concept of Food Sovereignty, its emergence in the Global South and Europe and the new networks developing in the UK.

Lunch will be a bring-to-share affair with local food recipes from across Somerset.

*Somerset Skillshare
Representatives from groups across Somerset will then share examples of action in their communities – from starting allotments to starting food co-operatives. We will hear what they have done, what they have learnt and learn about the resources we would need to develop similar projects.

*Creating a strategy
The final part of the day will be a facilitated group session to take help us take away ideas for action. Plans emerging could form the basis of Transition Food Group’s Energy Descent Plan or something similar. The aim is that we are focused, empowered and prepared for 2012 and beyond.

The day is entry by donation only. Please use the form below to register so we have an idea of numbers and please bring something to share about your experiences, any ideas or suggestions are also greatly received! Please also note people new to food activism are also completely welcome!

Many thanks and see you in October.

Organised by Reclaim the Fields, Somerset Community Food,  and the Transition Glastonbury Food Group.
