Nyéléni history. The vision of food sovereignty for Europe is based on the principles defined at the Nyéléni Forum in Mali in 2007. The first Nyéléni Europe Forum in Europe took place in Austria in 2011. The role of the first edition was to define the struggles and strategies necessary to create a movement for Food Sovereignty in Europe, which can challenge the dominant forces of production and consumption present in today's society.
Food Sovereignty. Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.
The Movement in Europe. Nyéléni Europe is the widest international movement aiming to realize food sovereignty in Europe. It aims to build common strategies in order to re-organize the way we structure our society around food and agriculture today.
