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.

Crowdsourcing bootcamp – non-profit organisaties leren door te doen

‘The West’s War Against the World’ Yash Tandon

Everything, from land and water to health and human rights, is intimately linked to the issue of free trade. For the vast majority of people, and especially those in the poorer regions of the world, free trade not only hinders development – it causes relentless waves of violence and impoverishment on their lives. Tandon suggests an alternative model to this devastation, one founded on self-sustaining, non-violent communities engaged in trade based on the real value of goods and services. Herewith he tears down the working of organisations like the WTO and agreements like the EU-Africa EPA, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). For the SID Lecture Series ‘New Spaces for International Engagement’, Yash Tandon will discuss the devastating mechanism of global businesses and will propose alternative visions during his lecture ‘The West’s War Against the World’.
