Power in Coop!

Jan 13, 2015 Posted by:  

Cooperation, community, local food! We invite you to see a short documentary film, created by Polish Green Network, showing why and how consumers can support sustainable agriculture.

One of the main goals of the ClimATE Change project activities is raising awareness on the role of sustainable agriculture in addressing the climate change challenges in the context of food production and natural resources protection. We also try to show how consumers can support people- and climate-friendly agriculture through cooperation with farmers and building alternative food systems based on local food production and distribution, such as food cooperatives and various community supported agriculture initiatives.

In our film, titled "Power in Coop", people engaged in the food cooperatives movement and representatives of non-governmental organisations working for sustainable agriculture in Poland explain why consumers should try to buy local food and how they can cooperate with farmers. The interviews were filmed during the Open Cooperation Picnic of the 3rd Congress of Cooperatives taking place in June 2014 in Krakow, which was co-organized by Polish Green Network as one of the local public events in the framework of the ClimATE Change project.

We want to thank very much the authors of the film and all the interviewees for their cooperation. We hope that our film will be a source of inspiration to all viewers!
