CO-OPERATIVES WORKING WITH OTHERS: COOPERATING FOR FOOD SECURITY
Nova Scotia Co-operative Council, Measuring the Co-operative Difference Research Network, Conseil Coopératif Acadien Nouvelle Écosse, Nova Scotia Government & others
This panel session at the 2012 Co-operating to Build a Better Nova Scotia Conference in Halifax explored co-operatives working together for food security. Cooperation in food and agriculture has a long history in Canada. As food receives increasing public attention citizens are looking for ways to build a more equitable and more resilient food system. This session will aim to better understand the role that co-ops play in food and agriculture in Nova Scotia. It will also discuss the potential that co-ops offer for improving food security and building a food system that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. There are no slides available for Robert Jeans' or Melissa Stewart's presentations. The YouTube URI leads to an audio recording of all three presentations.
