How can we build community wealth through food and farming?
January 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am UTC+1
What is community wealth building and how can we build it through work in the food and farming sector?
Community wealth building offers an antidote to the current economic system which is destroying local economies, people and our planet. The food and farming sector has suffered at the hands of this system with supermarkets prioritising profit over fair pay for staff and farmers, lengthy supply chains limiting opportunities for local producers and healthy, sustainable food becoming the preserve of the middle classes who have larger incomes and more choice. The result: wealth leaking from local economies and communities having little influence over their local economy.
Joinfor this Sustain and Sustainable Food Places webinar to explore what community wealth building is and how it can be used to build resilient local food economies that capture local wealth and use it to ensure everyone is able to access healthy, local, sustainable food.
