Faith-Based Solutions to Create Climate Resilient Food Systems

Food System | Workshop

Building upon findings generated from the Faith and Food Dialogues for the UN Food Systems Summit, this workshop explores the important role faith-based values and solutions play in creating climate resilient food systems. It will involve dialogue centered on recognizing the interconnectedness of nature and health, food systems and ecosystems, and the pressing need to reevaluate who and what the food systems benefits.

The failure to support the health of people and the planet is a decision rooted in values and principles, which in this session will be placed front and center as we explore how faith, spirituality, and indigenous knowledge can help support nature positive solutions, both in food production and food distribution, to drive equitable and climate resilient food systems transformation. 

Participants in the workshop will reflect on the key faith values, found in the interfaith statement on faith and food, that create climate resilient food systems, including interdependence, empowerment, and solidarity, and will explore strategies on how to better work with faith-based organizations to implement food systems transformation at a local level.
