Renata Motta and Marco Teixeira at the Panel “Food activism: forms of resistance in the midst of multiple crises” during Food Culture Days
1 pm – 2 pm
Debate with Elisabetta Recine / Mazé Morais / Renata Motta / Tainá Marajoara
Moderation & Organization: Marco Antonio Teixeira
With the war in Ukraine and the recent climate and health crises, Western powers seem to be beginning to recognize the dangers to global food sovereignty, which have in fact been unfolding for a long time in many parts of the world. Yet many activist groups are already active locally and allied internationally to draw attention to this urgent issue, to protest against the power of the agribusiness industry, and to develop autonomous and self-sufficient models of organization and governance.
This panel invites activists and social movements’ researchers from Brazil to discuss these models and the challenges they face.
It will be in English and Portuguese, with simultaneous translation.
The panel will be live-streamed on foodculture days’s youtube channel.
