A Global Capacity Building Workshop every year – since 2012 – is being held at the Navdanya Biodiversity Conservation farm for citizens’ organizations and movements from across the world with eminent scientists and environmentalists,  an opportunity to learn from nature and farmers as teachers, as well as from the cutting edge ecological research combined with practical experience and participation in community activities. This year’s course was focussed on the analysis of two food systems. One is an industrial system based on globalised corporate control, chemicals and poisons, GMOs, patent monopolies & fossil fuels which is contributing to 75% of the planets ecological destruction, wiping out the livelihoods of small farmers and family farms, and creating an epidemic of food style diseases. The second food system is based on strong vibrant local economies, ecological processes that rejuvenate our soil, biodiversity, water. It is based on the sun’s energy – not fossil fuels – from the growing to the cooking & processing of food. Organic chemical free & fossil fuels free food systems hold the promise of generating meaningful work while rejuvenating the Earth and addressing problems of health and climate chaos.
