‘The food sovereignty movement in the UK has grown with hundreds of projects thriving across the UK. People who care for democratic, sustainable and fair food systems continue to grow in numbers and commitment.’
The movement members are realising the food sovereignty principles by focusing on food for people, building knowledge and skills, valuing food providers, localising foodsystems, working with nature and calling the government for adequate food and agriculture policies.
Following the successful first gathering of the food sovereignty movement in the UK, we will have the second national gathering on the 23-26 October. The gathering will be a great opportunity to:
· celebrate the strengths of the food sovereignty movement
· build a community of friends and networks
· be inclusive to people who have not yet engaged with food sovereignty
· agree a set of targets and policies to focus on as movement
· create representative, diverse and fair structures with which we can make decisions with as a movement
We welcome everyone who wants to work towards food sovereignty to join the movement and participate in our national gathering.
