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

Tuesday, December 8, 2015 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM (EST)
Hosted by: Community Food Centres Canada

Join us 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, we are thrilled to 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 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? We’ll explore successes and failures of various facets of the food movement in the global North and South, and we’ll unpack how different actors — individuals, organizations, businesses and governments — have championed change.
