The Learning Exchange will focus on the intersections between agroecological practices, food sovereignty and the solidarity economy model. Around 90 participants from community-based organizations, social movements, advocacy-oriented groups and funders will be participating. Participants are coming from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Panama, Cuba, Canada, US and Brazil. This event will provide a space for presentations, exchanges and group work for building sustainable food system models.
