ACCTING Webinar
Rooted in equality: Strengthening food security through gender+ inclusive and sustainable small-scale farming

 

25 April 2024

10.00 – 11.00 CET

ACCTING is delighted to host an online webinar on “Rooted in equality: Strengthening food security through gender+ inclusive and sustainable small-scale farming”!

The conversation will start with an introduction from ACCTING researcher Ayşe Gül Altınay (Sabanci University) on recommendations from the ACCTING research and factsheet titled Local is Beautiful: Gender+ Inclusive Agricultural Policies and Civil Society Practices for and with Small Farmers to delve into the heart of food security and sustainable development through the lens of gender+ inclusivity and small-scale farming.
She will be joined by two co-speakers Aylin Topal, an Associate Professor of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at Middle East Technical University, and Rebecka Milestad, Vice-director of the KTH FOOD centre and deputy head of the Department of Sustainable Development, Environmental Science and Engineering (SEED).

We aim to have an open discussion about the agricultural policies and NGO practices needed to strengthen local farmers from a gender+ ecofeminist perspective. We’ll examine the recommendations outlined and discuss the necessity for new policies at all governance levels to align with a European Green Deal that leaves no one behind.
