"Facing up to the environmental emergency: meetings for reflection and action": Food, responsibilities and sustainability

In this first "Rendez-vous for Reflection and Action" we look at the issue of food. Throughout the world, the cultures and practices of indigenous peoples are based on maintaining good relations with the various elements that make up the ecosystem and on the sustainable use of resources. The principle of responsible natural resource management that they uphold is increasingly reflected in global environmental action. This principle is also essential in the management of food, to combat waste and promote a better distribution of food. By drawing on indigenous food systems and traditional knowledge we can adopt sustainable alternatives and act here and now to protect our environment.

Various activities will be organised around this issue, for young and old, more information will follow.

This event takes place on the first Sunday of the month, so it is free of charge and no registration is required.
