Event – Towards agroecological futures: Learnings from participatory action research processes in Spain

We will provide simultaneous Spanish translation for this event. 


Join us for an Institute for Agroecology Power Up seminar with Daniel López García from the Spanish National Research Council and Entretantos Foundation.

April 26th, 10am-1130am EST on Zoom


In this seminar, Daniel López will share findings and outcomes from the systematization of agroecological transitions in eight Spanish territories. These cases, in different contexts (rural, urban and city-region) shed light on the processes, challenges and strategies needed to support agroecology transitions. Daniel will also discuss the role of conventional farmers within agroecological transitions.

Co-Presented by the UVM Institute for Agroecology and the UVM Food Systems Graduate Program.

Event – Where does agroecology rely on a colonial nutrition discourse and how can we disrupt this in ways that advance health equity?

This online event will provide simultaneous Spanish translation. 

Join us for an Institute for Agroecology Power Up seminar with Lucy Aphramor from the Center for Agroecology, Water and Resilience. Coventry University.

April 5th 10am-1130am EST on Zoom

In this seminar, dietitian Lucy Aphramor will revisit public health nutrition messages to show how these embed an ableist, healthist, neoliberal ideology. Centering work by scholars that highlights anti-Blackness as co-constituted with anti-fatness, we will explore ways to surface and disrupt the deep logic of coloniality locked in place by public health nutrition to develop a liberatory nutrition narrative that aligns with agroecological transition.

Co-Presented by the UVM Institute for Agroecology and the UVM Food Systems Graduate Program.
