The Radical Power Shift of Cooperatives

Traditional economic models are steeped in systemic oppression, from leadership to consumer access. Historically, the cooperative model has provided an avenue for community-based sustainable solutions that bring power back to the people. Let’s join together to grow our vision as a Slow Food family for the cooperative model as an anchor for equity, inclusion and justice.

Our food choices have a direct impact on the future of the planet, and Slow Food Nations is a platform to inspire people to make changes that have a positive impact on the environment. The Food for Change Tent will tell this story, offer calls to action, and engage the public in the conversation through a series of free talks.
