People’s knowledge transforming the food system

Everyday Experts – How Peoples Knowledge Can Transform the Food System  is a recently published open access edited book from the Centre of Agroecology Water and Resilience of Coventry University.

The book explains how knowledge built up through first-hand experience can help solve the crises in our food system – at home and abroad.   It brings together fifty-seven activists, farmers, practitioners, and researchers from around the world to take a critical look at attempts to improve the dialogue between people whose knowledge has been marginalised in the past and others who are recognised as professional experts. Their insights are shared through a combination of critical analysis, stories, poems, photos and videos. It is written from the perspective of people involved in changing the food system using participatory practices.

 The book includes excellent contributions from UK authors active in the food sovereignty movement.
