How We Can Reclaim Our Food System (Oct 20th, Brighton)

Organised by World Family

Wisdom In Nature will be having a stall and a shout at this event on Thursday!

Date: Thurs 20th Oct 2011
Time: 6pm (for 6.30pm) til 11pm
Venue: Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton.

An evening of talks discussion and good food.

A panel of speakers from four continents:
Colin Tudge ( Campaign for Real Farming, UK),
Hellen Yego (NGOMA Campaign, Kenya),
Sarath Fernando (MONLAR, Sri Lanka)
Dr Roberto Caballero (ACTAF, Cuba)
Sue Dibb, chair of the Brighton & Hove 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 – music and songs of Luke Concannon (Nizlopi).

Cost: £6/5 (not including food, though food available to purchase). Best for us if you can reserve a seat by contacting Jocelyn on 01273 702847 – but tickets will also be available on the door.
