Forgotten foods are future foods: Bridging food sovereignty between generations


This GFAR Talk considers how forgotten foods and the knowledge associated with them can be a vehicle for transformation of the global Agrifood System and empower farmers to be the agents of change. Our two speakers, Ms Irish Baguilat from Asian Farmers Association and Ms Christine Gould, CEO of Thought for Food, will describe how we can transfer traditional knowledge, innovations in food and farming, and novel technologies across generations from the custodians of forgotten crops and foods to growers, processors and consumers. The topic will contribute directly to the theme of the World Food Forum `healthy diets, healthy planet’ and highlight opportunities for the wider adoption of a diverse range of climate-resilient and nutritious crops and novel farming systems that have lower impacts on natural and managed ecosystems.

The talk will be of interest to all those who want to see an Agrifood System that is healthier for humanity and better for the planet including producers, policy makers, researchers and the wider public.
