Food injustice is rooted in unequal access to limited resources like land and water that undermine the right of small farmers and fishers, especially women. Over the years, we have also seen how climate change brings about devastation in food production. Thus, it is necessary for governments, private sector, civil society and people around the world to change and transform the current system in order to allow nine billion people (estimated global population by 2050) to have enough food to eat without decimating the natural resources our lives depend upon.
In today’s world, how do social movements bring about change? How can an active citizenry achieve food justice? Oxfam GB strategic adviser and author of the groundbreaking book “From Poverty to Power” Duncan Green will provide critical insights in a roundtable discussion among Oxfam’s partners, selected policymakers, and other stakeholders Oxfam’s analysis and experience on the role of active citizens in transformational change. Mr. Green’s presentation entitled, “From Poverty to Power: How active citizenship can achieve food justice?” will be held on September 21 at Cocoon Boutique Hotel, Quezon City. We will be posting live updates in our Twitter account: Oxfam sa Pilipinas on the day of the event. To join the discussion, use the hashtag #duncangreeninPHL
