Our Daily Bread: Cultivating Sustainable Food Systems is a webinar on 25 January that introduces the latest initiative of the Jesuit European Social Centre (JESC) Ecology on sustainable food systems.
With this initiative, over 150 faith-based organizations across the 27 European Union (EU) member states which work on sustainable food systems and agriculture were examined, and four of these organizations will share about their work.
Dr Stefan Einsiedel from the Munich School of Philosophy (HFPH) in Germany will give an initial presentation about the intersection of spirituality and sustainable food systems. Other speakers are Dr Suzy Serneels (Policy Officer on Food Systems at Broederlijk Delen in Brussels, Belgium), Johannes Moravitz (Adviser on ecology, energy, and agriculture at the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union in Brussels, Belgium), Ferenc Kiss SJ (from the Arló mission of the Hungarian Jesuits in Hungary), Juliette Maupas (from Église Verte or the Green Church in Paris, France), and Dr Béla Kuslits (from the JESC Ecology team in Brussels, Belgium).
JESC Ecology’s program on Our Sustainable Food Systems deals with one of the most important policy areas of the EU: food and agriculture. The Common Agricultural Policy receives almost a third of the EU budget and 38% of the EU produces food.
With land use as one of the most important factors behind biodiversity collapse, this JESC Ecology program works for an agricultural system that provides affordable, healthy and sustainable food for all people.
The JESC webinar will be held on 25 January from 14:00 to 15:30 (CET), and those interested to join need to register here.
