The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) is proud to present the 6th annual Food Sovereignty Convergence, and the first ever online Convergence!
Life has been a bit different this year, and Convergence will be too. We’ll be taking the Convergence un-conference format online, with a series of sessions across the week, kicking off on World Food Day, Friday 16 October. Stay tuned for schedules and registrations details coming soon.
Convergence is a space where Australia’s food sovereignty movement comes together to debate, collaborate, share, and strategize to advance food sovereignty in Australia, and build the movement for the future. From farmers to consumer advocates, food rights activists to chefs, from researchers to community organisers: we encourage everyone working on food sovereignty and food system change to join us to help shape the agenda for the coming year.
Food sovereignty asserts the right of peoples to nourishing and culturally appropriate food produced and distributed in ecologically sound and ethical ways, and their right to collectively determine their own food and agriculture systems.
Ahead of Convergence, we encourage you to join the FSC Facebook group to stay up to date and join the pre-event discussions about what issues and topics you would like included at Convergence: https://www.facebook.com/groups/917279945015531/
