On the afternoon of December 5, 2015, at 3.30 pm, on the occasion of COP21, leaders in defense of life and of our Planet, Mother Earth, will gather at La Villette in Paris and plant a ‘Garden of Hope’ as a reminder that our seeds, our soils and our biodiversity, kept in the hands of local farmers and caring citizens, are solutions to climate change, to which Industrial globalised agriculture makes a significant contribution. Our Seed Freedom and Food Freedom are the keystones to a prosperous and secure future for our Earth and for humanity.
As Earth citizens, we will launch a Pact with the Earth and with each other to defend our commons – our seeds, soil, water, biodiversity, air and climate systems – essential to building climatic resilience, and to affirm that in ecological organic agriculture and local food systems lie the answers to the food, nutrition and health crisis, water and climate crisis, and the creation of millions of climate refugees.
Read and Sign the Pact at the link above.
