For 25 years, hundreds of organisations and social movements have been advocating for the people’s rights to food sovereignty around the world. Many of these organisations were present at the Nyéléni Forum 2007 and feel part of a broader Food Sovereignty movement that considers the Nyéléni 2007 Declaration its political platform.
The international Nyéléni newsletter is the voice of this international movement for Food Sovereignty. Its main goal is to strengthen the grassroots of the movement, by providing accessible material on key issues and creating a space – for individuals and organisations involved in the struggle – to exchange their experiences and share information.
