GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION FOR JUST, EQUITABLE, HEALTHY, AND SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS
On September 23, the virtual event of the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS), the GPS* will hold a global protest against the corporate hijack of the UNFSS and the neoliberal solutions it peddles to co-opt the transformation of our food systems in the interest of corporate profit. The day will be headlined by the two-hour GPS Closing Plenary, also called the Speak Out for Just, Equitable, Healthy, and Sustainable Food Systems, which will be held simultaneously with the UNFSS.
The Speak Out will present the policy recommendations and action plans drawn from the thematic, regional, sectoral, and national events building up to the main event, as well as the Four Pillars of Transformation. The Declaration for the radical transformation of our food systems will also be presented and adopted.
