INVITATION: June 5 press launch of the counter-summit to the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 – the Global People’s Summit on Food Systems

The current neoliberal food system is not working for us, for our people, and for our planet.   

We must reclaim our voices to demand food systems that put our fundamental rights above profit, our planet over corporations, and our sovereignty over monopolies. On June 5, World Environment Day, hear from the displaced voices of the United Nations Food Systems Summit and why we are organizing a counter-summit.   

It’s time for a true Global People’s Summit for a Just, Equitable, Healthy, and Sustainable Food Systems!
