Sydney Ideas - Chido Govera on Growing Change: Female Empowerment Through Farming

Tuesday 2nd of May

Events (285)      May (208)     

Part of the Food Sydney Seminar Series.

How can small scale agro-ecological methods of farming empower women, benefit the environment, and contribute to food sovereignty and security?

Early in her life Chido Govera realised the importance of food to community. Mushroom farming enabled her not only to feed her family in Zimbabwe and attain independence, but to create a healthier environment through managing food waste. For many years Chido has shared her unique skills and experiences with women throughout Africa and globally as an educator and mentor.

Chido will join Sydney Ideas for a conversation with University of Sydney researcher Alana Mann to discuss how engagement in small scale agro-ecological methods of farming can empower women, benefit the environment, and contribute to food sovereignty and food security.

After the conversation Chido will be joined by University of Sydney human rights scholar Danielle Celeremajer, and international education researcher Tim Allender to continue the discussion, before an audience Q&A.

Chido Govera's visit to Australia is assisted by MAD. MAD (taken from the Danish word for “food”) is a nonprofit organization that convenes a global cooking community with a social conscience, a sense of curiosity, and an appetite for change.

Food Sydney will bring together city planners, public health advocates, food system scholars, urban developers, food producers, retailers and eaters to discuss how food is woven through the fabric of everyday life in this increasingly urban century, connecting the many social and environmental injustices in the world around us.

WHEN: Tuesday May 2nd 6pm - 730pm
WHERE: Law School Foyer, Eastern Avenue
University of Sydney, Sydney
