Our webinar (which is part of GEF’s transnational project on Climate Emergency Economy with Bulgaria, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) will include conversations with leading advocates of food sovereignty and community climate action, and will explore how we might strengthen the resilience of our local places.
The project builds upon the outputs of the 2020 project, ‘A Question of SCALE’ (SCALE also being an acronym for Supply Chains and Local Economies). The Position Paper developed in this project introduces and explores the potential of the Social and Solidarity Economy, Doughnut Economics, Just Transition, The Commons, Community Wealth Building and new co-operative approaches. This Position Paper is available on our website here.
