Agroecology and the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems: Transdisciplinary and Participatory Perspectives

I  know, I know, I haven’t posted in AGES! I have been so busy with other food and non-food related projects and have had little spare time to blog-on about food governance and the likes. Well, that is about to change as I really need some way to stay motivated through the thesis writing stage… So, to kick start this new blogging year, I am sharing a link to the Journal of Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems that has just published a special issue “Agroecology and the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems: Transdisciplinary and Participatory Perspectives.”  It is free to access online! http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wjsa21/37/1.


This special issue is devoted to defining the focus of agroecology, and pointing out ways that it must lead the way in transforming food systems to sustainability, from the seed and the soil, all the way to the table. Guest editors V. Ernesto Méndez, Christopher Bacon, and Rose Cohen bring together the transdisciplinary perspectives that have helped form our understanding of agroecology, how it promotes change through participatory action in research and education, and why it is important that agroecology lead the way in bringing sustainability to all people and all parts of our global food system.

 

Happy reading!
