Workshop: What is the Food Movement? And What is Your Next Move?
What IS the food movement? How can we most effectively mobilize everyone who has a stake in the food system? It's not just about 'voting with your fork.' Drawing from social movement theory and practice this workshop will explore the strengths and challenges of "our movement". We'll get into what you and your organization can do to advance food systems change at all levels.
Presenters: Kathy Ruhf, NESAWG Senior Fellow, & Land for Good; Ali Berlow, author and founder, Island Grown Initiative
