Looking Back to Move Ahead
Nova Scotia has consistently reported some of the highest rates of food insecurity in Canada and there is growing momentum to increase access to nutritious and culturally appropriate food produced in socially just, ecologically, and economically sustainable ways – in ways that advance food justice and food sovereignty. Thanks to a SSHRC Connection grant, FoodARC has embarked on the project: Looking Back to Move Ahead: Outreach, Knowledge Mobilization, and Intersectoral Exchange to Advance Food Security in Nova Scotia.
The project involves collaborating with local organizers to co-host a series of regional gatherings that serve as opportunities for outreach, knowledge and story sharing, action planning, and capacity building, and which focus on local priorities and interests. The project also involves engaging new and existing partners in a visioning and planning session to map out FoodARC’s next direction and priorities in the areas of food security, sovereignty, and justice research in Nova Scotia.
See below for the presentation slides and harvest reports of regional gatherings that have taken place to date, including the launch of FoodARC’s Report on 2015 Participatory Food Costing that launched in March 2017.
