Food, The Commons & Connection

BY MICHAEL REYNOLDS
@ VOL 40 ON AUG 01, 2019

Michael Reynolds holds a vision of a Commons-based future that supports thriving communities. Food is one of those universal truths that bind us all...we all need to eat. However, our experience of food is determined by many factors - social, economic, cultural, physical, political...some are positive influences and some not as positive. In fact, our experience of basic humans needs, like food, is one of the most visible signs of inequity in the world. This needs to change and we can do this through a value shift and a present-day reimagining of The Commons. In this talk, Michael will share some of the joys and learnings from the unfolding journey of Roimata Food Commons, whilst also acknowledging influences from community-building work for Food Resilience Network Inc. We have the technology to invite the change we need, we have the climate crisis to motivate us..all we need now is the heart and means to step into that brave new world.
