The Scientific Committee’s Carte Blanche: Sovereignty and Food Democracy

For a long time now, we have observed the emergence of democratic practices and social movements all along the food chain: from production to consumption, via distribution and transport.

Round table

All these initiatives seem to show that the relationship to what nourishes us—food—is fertile ground for the emergence of new democratic and solidarity practices.
In a context of intensifying food crises, the challenge of food security and sovereignty is paramount. How will we feed major cities in the future? Local practices exist, sometimes institutional and very often independent: soup kitchens, community centres, agricultural produce cooperatives, urban vegetable gardens and even food transport circuits. These are all examples which should prompt us to question the relationship between local initiatives and the global context.
