Agroecological farming systems: adapting to and mitigating climate change

Talk given by Jyoti Fernandes at the advaya event Climate Justice: Rights for People & Planet.

Climate change revolves around a question of global inequality and demonstrates the mass destruction fuelled by our consumerist growth economy. This was an evening of talks, panels, food, drinks, music and spoken-word exploring the human rights implications of the environmental crisis. We explored ecocide, globalisation, the growth-based economy, extreme energy, corporatisation, public health, and much more.
