A World Family Calabash-Food-Sovereignty-Next-Steps

A World Family Calabash

“A People’s Takeover of the World’s Food Supply”

Speakers from 4 Continents, Good Food and Great Music

 

We welcome you to come and discuss the future of our food, locally and globally.  We especially invite people with specialist knowledge, students, activists, organisers, growers, transitioners and anyone who is concerned about good food, health and justice here and in the wider world.

 

A panel of distinguished speakers from four continents: Colin Tudge ( Campaign for Real Farming, UK), Hellen Yego (NGOMA Campaign, Kenya), Sarath Fernando (MONLAR, Sri Lanka) and Dr Roberto Caballero (ACTAF, Cuba) and our own Sue Dibb, chair of the B&H Food Partnership, will be sharing their experience and expertise in Brighton on October 20th.

 

The discussion will focus on Food Sovereignty – the right of peoples to democratically define their own food and agricultural systems without harming other people or the environment – what is already happening and what are the next steps we need to take to attain it.  There will be time to discuss the issues with the speakers, enjoy good food and – to round off the evening – dance to the music and songs of Luke Concannon (Nizlopi).

 

The venue is the Friends Meeting House in Ship Street, Brighton, and doors will open at 6pm.  Talks start at 6.30.  Tickets are £6/£5 (not including food).  Best for us if you can reserve a seat by contacting Jocelyn on  jocelynjones49@gmail.com  or  01273  702847 – but tickets will also be available on the door.
