A training weekend on food sovereignty, agroecology and the right to food

ILEIA, FIAN, Otherwise, TNI, Toekomstboeren and the Wageningen University Rural Sociology Chairgroup welcome you to participate in the training weekend ‘Activating for Food Sovereignty: from our Daily Lives to Global Change’, an inspiring exchange on alternatives to our current food system.

The training weekend will take place on the organic farm Buitenverwachting near Leiden and is meant for both students, practitioners and (prospective) farmers who are interested in deepening their knowledge of food sovereignty, agroecology and the human right to food.

Through interactive discussions, workshops and practical exercises on the farm, we will reflect on our current food system, traditional roles of producers and consumers and barriers to food sovereignty. Various guest speakers will share their knowledge and experiences.

The training weekend takes place from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. The price includes food and shared accommodation (you will need to bring your own mat and sleeping bag). You can also bring your own tent. There is space for a limited amount of 35 participants. The selection of participants will be based on your question about food sovereignty which we ask you to formulate on the admission form:
