Food & Agriculture: Visions for the Future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While speaking of communities in the sharing economy one should not forget that food and agriculture are at the very core of societies´ (and therefore communities´) needs.
From the early Teikei in the 60s to nowadays initiatives, what can we observe? What are the similarities, successes and learnings in the food area? Why are communities such a significant part of the future of food?
By bringing together producers and consumers, the rural & urban approaches, the southern and northern hemispheres as well as local communities our guests will share their experiences and visions of sustainable agriculture & food systems.
How can communities around farming and food facilitate social change? How can we rethink our relationship between producers and consumers in more participative, equal and sustainable ways? What other things can be done? In this focus-session we will have a look at those and more questions together.
