Subversions from the Informal and Social Economy

 

Relocating social and ecological values in food systems

March 1, 2017 – Eastern Ontario [recorded webinar]

March 14, 2017 – Northwestern Ontario

March 15, 2017 – Atlantic Canada and the Northwest Territories

The Nourishing Communities research group is conducting community-based research investigating food initiatives that operate within the social or informal economy, intended to address food security and community development; benefit marginalized communities, including low-income groups, Aboriginal people, youth and women; and provide important environmental stewardship services. We are presenting initial reflections and case studies from regions across Canada in three upcoming 90-minute webinars:

•  Eastern Ontario – Wed March 1 at 10:00 a.m. EST

•  Northwestern Ontario – Tuesday, March 14 at 11:00 a.m. EST

•  Atlantic Canada and Northwest Territories – Wed March 15 at 12:00 EST

The webinars will present examples of initiatives that share foodways and/or re-introducing traditional practices; offer an alternative practice that challenges accepted values (e.g. therapeutic horticulture, seed saving, responsible community investment); share knowledge and networking to maximize impacts; and enable collective provision of basic needs.
