The right to food in London
16/10/2020 10:00 11:00

Joint webinar with HEAR London and the right to food project on how do we ensure that all Londoners have their right to food respected.

On this webinar we will hear from a range of speakers from across London who will talk about the many barriers than Londoners face in achieving their right to food and also crucially what needs to happen in order for this right to be a reality.

Speakers include:

Women Inspiring New Generations (WINGS). WINGS is a group of women who, with their young children, come together through Praxis to nurture their wellbeing, build new positive relationships and find respite from the demands of everyday life. WINGS mums also discuss issues that affect them, and share knowledge and experience in order to build solidarity and strength.
