Are you registered yet for Cultivating Change: A Just Transition to a Regenerative Food System?

From November 12-18, 2020, Food Secure Canada (FSC)’s Cultivating Change event will host a series of online conversations and workshops to explore the intersections between food systems, anti-racism, decolonization, and environmental justice movements.

Many compelling speakers will be covering a wide array of important topics, with a focus on incorporating a racial justice approach to food work at local/regional levels. The event will showcase the work of Indigenous, Black and racialized food leaders.

We encourage you to explore the full program here.

To make sure everyone is at the policymaking table, registration is on a sliding scale:

  • If you are professionally waged, with government, or a non-profit with extra funds: Please pay the full $75 for yourself and colleagues, and offer to pay $25 for other members of your community who don’t have financial access
  • If you are a student, non-profit or low-waged: Please aim to pay the $25
  • If you don’t have the means: Join for free

Paying for a ticket helps Food Secure Canada to cover at least part of the costs incurred in paying speakers for their time, in addition to features such as: offering live interpretation to French (and sometimes Spanish), paying artists and local businesses a fair wage, providing access to trained professionals to navigate trauma that may be brought up from discussing difficult topics, and activities such as film screenings and musical performances.
