Food should be a human right. Here’s how we get there

12 Jun 2020

Food should be a human right. A right to food protects the fundamental liberty for all individuals to feed themselves with dignity. The right to food should be supported in ways that allow all individuals to have the means and freedom to access food that is quantitatively and qualitatively adequate to meet the individual’s dietary needs and correspond to the cultural traditions of the people that the individual belongs to. This session at GLF Bonn 2020 explores food sovereignty and designing a just food system.
