Our food system is clearly broken — but it remains difficult to imagine a genuine alternative gaining real traction. Popular and policy discourse remains siloed into a series of disconnected topics, without intuitive links between them, stymieing the strategic thinking and partnerships needed for progress. If we want to create a unified vision of a better food system, one that’s healthy, just, and sustainable, we will need to overcome these barriers. To start this process, we are holding a special workshop in partnership with the Land Workers’ Alliance and Stir to Action on September 15th in Bristol, to begin analysing and attempting to overhaul the narrative barriers that silo the symptoms of dysfunction in our food system.
We will be working on three focus areas where we have identified important barriers in current understanding and opportunities to overcome them:
Over the coming weeks, we intend to develop these areas further, to create the foundation for a successful session in September, and collaborative work beyond. If you are interested in attending the session on September 15, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
