LESSONS FROM UKRAINE

ONLINE PANEL EVENT

THURSDAY 7TH JULY 2022

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER VIA EVENTBRITE

What does war in Ukraine, and the global response to conflict, tell us about global food production and food systems more broadly?

What does Russia's war in Ukraine tell us about structural weaknesses in the global food system?  Is this conflict a fore-taste of things to come, as major food and fossil fuel-producing nations begin to strategically reposition their economies?  And what does the response to this conflict tell us about the power of the agricultural lobby and the level of global policy support for an agroecological transition?

Please register today via Eventbrite to join us for this conversation on Thursday the 7th of July
