Opportunities and challenges for Food Sovereignty in Scotland @ Serenity Cafe

A dinner and evening discussion in preparation for the European Food Sovereignty Forum.

On 26-30 October over a thousand people will be gathering in Romania for a European Forum for Food Sovereignty. This Forum will be the second ever Europe-wide Food Sovereignty Forum. It will gather over a thousand people from 30+ countries, representing different parts of the food system including producers, consumers, activists, researchers, community-workers plus people with an interest in the environment, social justice, human rights and development.

This is an incredible opportunity for the Scottish food movement to learn from people from all across Europe who also work to reform our food system. Likewise, the Scottish food movement has a lot to contribute to the Forum, from the grassroots to the policy level.

Join Nourish Scotland, Common Good Food, and the Scottish delegates to the Nyéléni Europe Forum on Friday 7th October to contribute your experiences and your stories, as well as your struggles and your questions!

This Nyeleni preparatory meeting will start with an informal chat over dinner, which will be followed by 2 hours of facilitated discussions.
