The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network has come up with this great workshop guide (just follow the links on their site to download the documents). Their commitment to public education has led them to craft a downloadable kit, full of tips for hosting the workshop and a variety of activities. The average workshop last about an hour and a half, but it can be lengthened or shortened depending on the number of activities used.
The workshop is all about interacting with participants, their experiences and perceptions to create a better understanding of food sovereignty. Food sovereignty is a tool used by activists to help reconceive food as an interaction between small scale farmers, communities, indigenous populations and consumers.
It creates meaningful solidarity work in agriculture. The workshop guide includes:
A sample agenda
A variety of warm ups, ice breakers and main activities
Easy to understand hand outs
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
