During the conference, plenary sessions, keynotes and workshops will address challenges for food system transformation. How do we as farmers, citizens, fishermen, researchers etc. can navigate these challenges? What the value of collective action and collective power in navigating these challenges? The conference is grounded in the Netherlands but linked internationally. We will discuss international linkages and solidarity, self-determination and autonomy. Finally, we will discuss “food democracy”. What does food democracy look like in practice? How can we build a democratic and inclusive food system for everyone?

The day programme of the Voedsel Anders/Food Otherwise 2022 Conference will soon be extended with a list of workshops, panel discussions and excursions to local food producers.
