The world is facing a multi-faceted crisis (climate change, COVID, conflict, food…), which calls for unprecedented levels of collective action. And yet, the crisis itself is undermining the social cohesion required to address it, and trust in multi-lateralism and international rule of law seem to be declining at the time when they are most needed.
Was a stimulating exchange between inspiring leaders working on food systems transformation on: how can Nature guide us in transforming disruption and destruction into connection and regeneration?
Myra Jackson, Founder of Global Freshwaters Summit, an Initiative of the Global Being Foundation, and Earth rights specialist, facilitated a discussion between:
* Joshua Konkankoh, Indigenous Earth Guardians as Regenerators
* Jennifer Viloria, Founder and CEO of IISLA Ventures, and Co-chair of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN)
* Patrick Caron, Vice President for International Affairs and Founder-Director of the Montpellier Advanced Knowledge Institute of Transition (MAK’IT) at the University of Montpellier, France
The conversation was concluded by Thomas Legrand, Technical Advisor to the Conscious Food Systems Alliance and author of Politics of Being.
The event was close with a moment of mindful connection to the Earth guided by Brother Chân Pháp Lai, Dharma Teacher from Plum Village, the Buddhist community founded by Thich Nhat Hanh.
