Since 2003, the Brazilian Congress of Agroecology (CBA) has been held with the active and broad participation of education institutions and civil society movements working on all aspects of family farming. Initially thought of as a space for valuing agroecology as a science, the CBA has been maturing as a true space for dialogue between scientific and practical knowledge, built by all supporters of ecological farming and food sovereignty, in Brazil and the world.
Our dialogues have been pointing to the challenge of consolidating another way of doing science, based on the dialogue of knowledge, to (re)build (re)sistences, sovereignty and art. In this sense, this challenge is necessarily collective.
Therefore, previous editions of the congress brought to the public debate relevant themes for the strengthening of agroecology throughout the national territory and unveiled the choice of the theme of the XI edition of the Congress – Knowledge Ecology: Science, Culture and Art in the Democratization of Agri-Food Systems.
