Couldn’t make it to Convergence this year? No worries! Catch up on AFSA’s action plan for 2024.
Last month, the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) converged on Brinja-Yuin Country, (Moruya NSW) for our annual Food Sovereignty Convergence, a democratically organised gathering that builds connection and sets our organisation’s priorities for the year ahead. This year saw a strong focus on building and supporting more local and community-of-practice collectives, promoting agroecology as a science, a set of practices, and a social movement, and establishing an agrarian trust, amongst other important activities!
In the lead up, we received a number of questions about the option to livestream the Unconference to those who couldn’t make it. While we believe it’s not possible to capture the magic of in-person movement building, this Solidarity Session is targeted at anyone who wasn’t able to come along to see where you might be able to get more involved in the movement.
Join us for a wrap-up of the two days of lively discussion and action planning, including a run down of the Convergence Declaration 2023, which summarises the actions that were collectively agreed upon for the year ahead.
This session will be led by AFSA President, Tammi Jonas, who will offer a brief recap on what we got up to in Moruya, before opening up the floor to members and allies to ask questions and offer additional actions for AFSA’s 2024 work plan.
- Date: Wednesday 29 November
- Time: 6.30-7.30pm (AEDT)
- Location: Online (Zoom)

As always, this session is open to anyone and everyone interested in food sovereignty and agroecology. From First Peoples to farmers and allies, please share this invitation widely. AFSA is its members, so we want to hear from you all to ensure our 2024 priorities reflect your needs.
