From 28-30 September, FIAN Nederland organises a training weekend in Grolloo (Drenthe), The Netherlands. The theme is: The Human Right To Food in Practice.

This will be an intensive training for people who would like to engage with the right to food and/or FIAN’s work in the future. In the training concrete cases of violations of the right to food in the context of access to natural resources, land grabbing and land conflicts will be analysed. The participants will acquire skills to work on the right to food, use human rights instruments and contribute to the visibility of the struggle for the realisation of the right to food by organizing follow-up activities in their own area.

The entire training weekend costs €75. This fee includes: tuition costs, training materials, full board and lodging (accommodation in shared rooms) and travel costs to the venue from within the Netherlands. These travel costs will be reimbursed after the training weekend. Not included are travel costs outside the Netherlands and any additional costs that might occur during your stay.

Max Havelaar lecture 2015

The Dawn or a New Era?
Are the Sustainable development Goals going to deliver??

2015 highlights the finalization of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the start-up of the Sustainable Development Goals. What have the MDGs delivered? And what can we expect from the new goals? The number of goals has more than doubled (17 goals), they are more complex (169 sub-goals) and they are universal, i.e. applicable not only to ‘developing’ but also to ‘developed’ countries. How should we understand this move, what can we expect and how are Dutch organizations contributing to this agenda? The 8ht Max Havelaar lecture will find answers to these questions.
