 Dear all:

We are pleased to inform the realization of the International Seminar "Agrobiodiversity: geographies, subjects and governments of the common goods in the reconstitution of food systems for Living Well" from June 22 to 24, 2020 . The seminar is an event convened by the JAINA Study Community, within the framework of the activities of the project "Assessment of agrobiodiversity to reconstitute healthy food", supported by GIZ in Bolivia. This initiative has been coordinated and developed through collaborative work involving different institutions, organizations and academics from different countries of the American continent, through an organizing committee made up of JAINA, SOCLA, CLACSO and the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation.

The objective of the event is to deepen the analysis and knowledge, from different approaches and research experiences, for the comprehensive assessment of agrobiodiversity based on a biocultural, agro-ecological, political and geographic approach, in such a way that it places food and agrobiodiversity as goods common in the construction of alternatives of restitution and reconstitution of Living Well. In this perspective, the program of the seminar is very rich in diversity of speakers and approaches. We invite you to be part of it by registering for free from . In particular, we invite you to join the tables in which SOCLA members participate:
