Panel discussion at the the 4th International Degrowth Conference for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity in Leipzig in 2014.
Speakers: Reinhild Benning, Christiana Schuler, Lucía Gallardo, Eric Holt-Giménez (via video)
Facilitation: Jan Urhahn

From the conference programme: No matter who we are, we all share the need for food. Looking at the way food is produced, treated and distributed, deficiencies become obvious. Considering the interdependencies of our food system, the panel discusses how a decentralized degrowth society can supply for this existential need. How can we ensure food sovereignty without violating humans or nature? What could a food system look like which contributes to the “good life for all” rather than the economic growth of food companies and agrobusiness?
