Autumn Gathering 2024: 1-3 Nov in Grassina, near Florence/IT

We’re excited to announce the dates and location of our next annual in person gathering! We’ll be meeting from November 1-3 at the Casa del Popolo in Grassina, near Florence/IT. To discuss and liaise, talk strategy, celebrate the Italian launch of our ‘Transforming Agriculture’ book, and learn with key comrades from agroecological, syndicalist and other struggles in the Region. We’ll have two full days of discussions and workshops, and a final day of excursion to occupied farmlands and factories. Detailed programme forthcoming. Join us, book your trains, buses, couchsurfes or hostels! We’ll soon have a registration form up, but if you’re very eager already you can drop us an email.

Farming and its Others, and Other Ways of Farming

Why are so many farmers raging against the conditions of food production, and not against the drivers of the crisis in agriculture? Who aren’t we seeing? What other farmers, and ways of farming, should we look to for alternatives? Drawing on insights from our allies from peasant, agroecological, agri-syndicalist, migrant and feminist farming movements, from across Europe, we wrote this text to shed some light on the crisis of agriculture, its neoliberal and right-wing capture, and the struggles we really need to look to.

Towards Eco-Social Curricula: Learning, Teaching & Getting Organized when the World is on Fire

Launching new strand and process! Are you a parent, teacher or student who thinks the socio-ecological crisis urgently needs to be addressed in schools? We invite you to join a process of collective conversations, learning and scheming about eco-social curricula in education (primary, secondary and university alike).
