“Food sovereignty: act today to eat well tomorrow” is a travelling exhibition proposed by a broad coalition of civil society organizations – NGOs or organisations of local farmers – from French-speaking Switzerland. The 11 themes of this exhibition explore the links between nutrition and health, between autonomy, proximity, biodiversity and the interests of multinationals, between access to land and resources and quality of food products. Food sovereignty is a concept developed by the International farmers’ movement Via Campesina promoting people’s choice of what they eat and grow. More information here.
