To be held on 15 December at 15:00-17:00 CET, the webinar comes at a time when access to food remains a challenge for many marginalized communities around the globe, even though the world on a global scale should have ample food to provide for everyone.
Deep injustices are at play, not least as communities strive to grapple with the impacts of colonial history on present-day societies, alongside the intersections of economic interests, market forces, the commercialization of food, and oftentimes unsustainable farming practices – all of which affects food security for communities around the world.
“Through this webinar, we seek to help consolidate resources – analytical, advocacy, and practical – and understand and expose the effects of the combined forces of food, climate, and racial injustice,” explains Dr Masiiwa Ragies Gunda, WCC programme executive for programmatic responses on overcoming racism.
“The scene for the discussion will be set by key input from expert voices in the faith context, and the conversation will also include theological reflections on how the Holy Scripture can assist and guide us in bringing justice, dignity, and rights to marginalised communities with regard to food and land,” adds Dr Manoj Kurian, coordinator of the WCC - Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance.
Attendance in the webinar is by registration.
