Going forward for all: From food system crisis to agroecology.

20200914helenapaul

If people can become more aware of what food actually is - where it comes from, who grows it, what they go through to grow it, what climate change means for production - if people can begin to understand what the producer needs, and the producer can understand what the people they are provide food for actually want, and have discussions about what's possible and what's not possible... That I would not describe as 'going back' to something old. I would describe it as very potentially a major development, a 'going forward' for all of us.

Helena Paul examines the disasterous consequences of global capitalism and its industrial food system - on the environment, humans and the relationship between us - and explains how a massive shift to the sustainable practices of radical, democratic agroecology.

Helena wrote the article Looking beyond the pandemic: Agroecology, and the need to rethink our food system for Radical Ecological Democracy.
