Why are we organizing a parallel event to the UN World Food Day?

The United Nations Food Systems Summit has been hijacked by corporate agribusiness and pesticide cartels, so we need to create a different summit to promote agroecological, organic and regenerative food systems.

In June 2019, the UN signed a strategic partnership agreement with the World Economic Forum (WEF), pushing the influence and corporate greed agendas of the billionaires cartel. The agribusiness cartel agenda was consolidated with the appointment of Ms. Agnes Kalibata, the current President of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA, Gates Foundation funded organization), as the Special Envoy for the UN Food Systems Summit.

More than 550 civil society organizations wrote to Mr. António Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General calling for the termination of the UN-WEF strategic partnership agreement and rethinking the Food Systems Summit. The lack of a positive outcome means that hundreds of civil society organizations will be boycotting this summit.

The Positive Alternative: A Food Summit of, for and by the People

The People’s Food Summit will be a truly participatory summit that empowers the majority of the world's food producers: the small-holder family farmers, pastoralists and foresters who produce 80% of the food we eat.

We will present the proven, farmer based, real world examples that are the future of our food and farming systems, including agroecology, organic and regenerative farming, permaculture, agroforestry, holistic managed grazing and many other systems. This is a distinct contrast to the cartel model that exploits farmers and consumers to get the highest proportion of the sale prices; stealing trillions of dollars that rightfully belong to some of the poorest communities on our planet.

We invite all our partners to participate and will keep you updated via our website and emails.

Each region is self-organized and determines their own formats.
