To oppose the corporate hijacking of the Food Systems Summit, the people’s counter-mobilization offers an opportunity for civil society to connect their struggles and fight together for a better world based on mutual respect, social justice, equity, solidarity and harmony with Mother Earth.
The summit started with a Global Virtual Rally on Sunday July 25 from 10:00 to 18:00 CEST followed by many excellent events that expose the corporate takeover and technofixes or explore grassroots visions of the food systems we want and need.
Here are a few counter-summit events that ETC Group is helping to organize:
