Event description
All over the world people are fighting for food justice. What can we in the UK learn from the Global South? How can we join our struggles?

About this Event

There is an international movement which aims to end food insecurity and promote social and environmental justice. Many of the answers to the key questions of hunger and health, environmental degradation, and inequality are already answered; the problem is putting them into practice. The economic and political power structures and institutions that dominate global agriculture and the inequalities in land ownership create serious obstacles to transformation of the food system. The UK is implicated in this, through its own agribusiness corporations, colonial legacy in land grabbing, and consumption patterns that aggravate social and economic injustice and environmental destruction.

We have seen in previous seminars that people in the UK are also struggling against a system that harms the environment, produces poor quality food, and exploits agricultural and food industry workers. Instead we aim for a transformation of the food system to benefit us all. What can we learn from what is happening in the Global South?
