We are Everywhere: Social Movements for Food Sovereignty
Join us for reports back from the 6th international conference of La Via Campesina and discussions around the growing movement for food sovereignty. Adam, a member of Organiclea workers’ co-operative attended the conference as a representative of the new UK member, the Landworkers’ Alliance. Come along to hear all about it.

The total membership is in excess of 200 million and growing constantly as new organisations join. The international conferences are held every 4 years and represent the highest forum for decision making within the organisation, and an opportunity for the member organisations to strategise and share ideas.
