With half of the EU’s peasants, Romania is the ideal place for the largest pan-European food sovereignty forum in history. Hundreds of farmers, peasants, pastoralists, fishers, rural youth, environmentalists and others will gather in Cluj-Napoca between the 25th and 30th of October 2016. Agriculture is direct action! Resistance is Fertile. The video can be seen HERE. By Carlo Bolzoni and Guglielmo Del Signore.
Dear Food Sovereignty Movement in Austria, from 26 - 30 October 2016 the second European Forum for Food Sovereignty - Nyéléni Europe - will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. All the people who participated in the first Nyeleni Europe Forum in 2011 in Krems know how motivating and exciting this reunion is. More information on the new Nyéléni Forum: www.nyelenieurope.net.
In April the Urgenci Ostrava Steering Committee met to prepare the 3rd European Meeting on Community Supported Agriculture. It is a prelude to the topics of sustainable production and consumption at the Nyéléni 2 meeting that will be held just over a month later in October in Cluj-Napoca Romania. The Urgenci meeting is scheduled to take place 16th-18th September in the old steel and coal works in Ostrava, part of which have been amazingly renovated into a cultural and conference centre.
