The Fair Food Convergence is the coming together of the food sovereignty movement in Australia. Producers, educators, activists, urban agriculturalists, foodpreneurs, communicators, innovators – whoever you are, wherever you’re from – if you see yourself as part of Australia’s food movement, this is for you! Two days of debate, stories, analysis, sharing, strategising and planning, all in the cause of building a fair food system for all Australians!
In the style of an unconference not unlike the wonderfully successful Deep Winter Agrarian Gathering held in July this year, we’d like to invite anyone working in the fair food movement to propose topics for discussion at the Convergence.
Broadly, we propose that discussions should coalesce around farmers, farm & food workers, connectors, regulators, eaters, & activists. Do you have something to say? Pop your idea up here. Something you want to hear about? Ask about it here. As the day approaches (17/18 October), we’ll start to pull the structure together from your suggestions.
There will be contributions from the Australian Earth Laws Alliance about the role of community lawyers in supporting the Fair Food movement, from the Open Food Network about building community food enterprises, explorations of what ‘Fair Food’ means (e.g. ‘beyond organic’), extending the divestment strategy to the big food / ag corporates, and much more.
For AFSA members, our AGM will take place at the conclusion of the Convergence, on Sunday 18th October.
This event is generously supported by the City of Melbourne and William Angliss Institute.
