Green Recovery and the Role of Collective Action
The webinar took place on Monday 12th October from 10:00 to 11:30 am Rome time.
In the context of the global pandemic, we have the opportunity to learn from this experience and work collectively towards a green recovery programme that builds resilience into our food and farming system.
The webinar featured 6 producers who have had the bravery to “seize the day” and are working collectively with others to regenerate our economy, nature and health.
The webinar was delivered in English and live streamed on Youtube.
