Nyeleni newsletter - Now is the time for food sovereignty!

Subscribe to our newsletter

Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations. (…) Declaration of Nyeleni.

About us

The international Nyéléni newsletter is the voice of the 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.

It would not be possible to produce the newsletter without valuable contributions from members of the movement in the form of articles, illustrations, knowledge, and suggestions, as well as financial support.

Special thanks go out to all the professional translators who with their volunteer work make the newsletter available in English, Spanish and French.

Partners Organisations

In recent years hundreds of organisations and movements have been engaged in struggles, mobilisations, and other activities to defend and promote the right of people to Food Sovereignty around the world. Many of these organisations were present in the Nyéléni Forum 2007 and feel part of a broader Food Sovereignty Movement that considers the Nyéléni 2007 Declaration as its political platform. The Nyéléni Newsletter is the voice of this international movement.
