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.

Deliberative democracy

During the series New Democracy, three evenings will be devoted to deliberative democracy; both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. Throughout the evenings we will investigate how to improve representativeness and legitimacy of decision making processes. Guest speakers affiliated with deliberative initiatives, such as the G1000 and other (on- and offline) platforms for deliberation, will reflect upon power mechanisms on various scales within deliberative processes. In this manner, the three evenings are presenting us with the problems and possibilities of democratic innovation.
