The Food For Thought and Action series is proud to present its Lismore public panel, New Environmentalism: food, environmental & political activism, hosted by Southern Cross University Arts and Social Sciences Community Engagement (register here).
How can we foster a culture of collective activism to address society’s most pressing environmental and social issues?
The growing links between the environment, health, food security, poverty and social justice reflect an emerging understanding of the structural forces that negatively impact people, health and the environment. How can we thread together seemingly disparate initiatives and social movements to create the sustained social pressure and political will necessary for transformative change?
Join me with panel guests international food systems expert, agroecologist and author Eric Holt Gimenez, Executive Director Food First, former Australian politician and environmental activist Ian Cohen and food activist and local farmer Joel Orchard, to discuss the opportunities and challenges in building a powerful, unified movement for progressive change.
