We are proud to launch CIDSE’s new “Voices for Change” blog. This blog space is dedicated to “systemic change.” It will reflect and analyse current issues that are challenging and transforming systems such as those for producing and consuming food or energy, at their intersection with greater systems of injustice: patriarchy, racism, colonialism or capitalism. It will also bring stories of change to break out of abusive and unjust systems, however small or big the change. We look forward to contributions from the CIDSE family, partners and allies to this blog space.
