Webinar: Field notes for social change, a conversation with Raj Patel

Upcoming Webinar: Tuesday, December 8, 2015 12-1pm EST

Join Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) on Tuesday, December 8th  from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EST  for a webinar that explores how social change actually happens. In this one hour webinar, CFCC will welcome Raj Patel’s lessons from the frontlines of the food justice movement. Raj Patel is an award-winning writer, activist, and academic. He has worked for the World Bank and the WTO, and protested against them around the world. His first book was Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System and his latest, The Value of Nothing, is a New York Times best-seller. CFCC’s Nick Saul will moderate the discussion.

This webinar interrogates the question: Where does social transformation come from? It’ll explore the successes and failures of various facets of the food movement in the global North and South, and will unpack how different actors — individuals, organizations, businesses and governments — have championed change.
