The Global People’s Summit on Food Systems, the three-day counter-summit to the UN Food Systems Summit, kicked off on September 21. The opening program features how marginalized rural peoples from the Global South – landless farmers, agricultural workers, indigenous peoples, fisherfolk, rural women, youth, rural people living in occupied areas, and sanctioned peoples – envision and achieve just, equitable, healthy, and sustainable food systems.

The program also includes solidarity messages and a moderated panel discussion on the UNFSS and its outcomes. The event also pay tribute to peasant heroes, their stories, and their contributions for a just, equitable, healthy, and sustainable food system.
