Sponsored by the North American chapter of SOCLA (The Latin American Scientific Society of Agroecology)

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, an island whose resiliency has been systematically undermined by centuries of colonization and exploitation. Can Puerto Rican social movements advance a people-centered reconstruction that is just, equitable and sustainable? Agroecologists and food sovereignty activists from SOCLA and Boricua will discuss the challenges and opportunities –starting with the island’s highly compromised food system.

Speakers:

Georges Félix: Puerto Rican food sovereignty activist and agroecologist, SOCLA Puerto Rico.
Organización Boricuá de Agricultura Ecológica of Puerto Rico (the Puerto Rican Association for Ecological Agriculture, representative TBD)
Miguel Altieri Professor Emeritus of Agroecology, University of California Berkeley
Clara Nichols Professor of Agroecology, President of SOCLA
Moderator: Eric Holt-Giménez, PhD
