Food activism: forms of resistance in the midst of multiple crises

Food for Justice / Elisabetta Recine / Mazé Contag / Renata Motta / Tainá Marajoara (BR)

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.

The panel will be live-streamed on this page and on foodculture days's youtube channel.

Moderation:

Marco Antonio Teixeira, sociologist, postdoctoral researcher at the Heidelberg Center for Ibero-American Studies (HCIAS) at Heidelberg University, and project leader of the research group Food for Justice: Power, Politics and Food Inequalities in the Bioeconomy, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).


Guest Speakers:

- Elisabetta Recine, professor at the Health Sciences College of the University of Brasilia (UnB) and president of the National Council for Food and Nutritional Security (Consea)

- Mazé Contag, advisor to the Contag Secretariat for Women and Marcha das Margaridas

- Renata Motta, sociologist, professor of “society, culture and communication in Ibero-america” at the Heidelberg Center for Ibero-American Studies (HCIAS) at Heidelberg University, and project leader of the research group Food for Justice: Power, Politics and Food Inequalities in the Bioeconomy, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

- Tainá Marajoara, cook, multi-artist, indigenous thinker, and founder of the Amazonian Observatory of Food Culture and the Human Right to Adequate Food and Nutrition (OCADHANA)
