This issue of Farming Matters brings to the forefront how perspectives such as intersectional feminism and indigenous cosmologies coupled with agroecology have been transforming our economy and society. These insights offer pertinent lessons for the pursuit of deeper, much needed transformation.
It was officially launched at a webinar on 7 October 2020. Live visual notes were made during the webinar in the form of an infographic on feminism and agroecology, available for download.
