Working Groups to Activate Change

Sunday Nov 04   11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (1 hour 30 minutes)
Concordia University - MB Building - MB Multiple locations

What bold actions can we take to create a deep and lasting change? How will we work together to build a healthier, more sustainable and just food system?

Following the plenary, ten working groups will be convened around the topics below to explore key strategies that can come out of this 10th Assembly. Each working group will be led by a facilitator from the FSC Youth Caucus/student movement/community sector, in partnership with an organization with expertise in key issues to help set the stage.

Below is a proposed list of 10 working group topics: 

  • Building a Movement Towards a National School Food Program
  • Fighting Poverty to Achieve Zero Hunger
  • Labour and human rights
  • Indigenous Food Sovereignty: Activists, Allies and unsettling food politics
  • Organizing for Food Justice:  Fighting Racism in the Food System
  • Urban Innovation in Food 
  • Making the Case for Agro-ecology in the Next Federal Election
  • Taking Action on Canada’s Healthy Eating Strateg
  • Planning Eat Think Vote 2019, an Election Year
  • Open space

Our goal for working group discussions is to envisage collectively where we want to go as a food movement and to identify clear priorities for activating change. Stay tuned for more details.
