Together we can cool the planet!


Produced by La Vía Campesina and GRAIN, it gives you the information you need to understand how the agro-industrial food system is impacting our climate and what we can do to change course and start cooling the planet. And every single one of us is part of the solution!

“AEFJN listens to the voice of Africa... brings this voice to the EU, and insists on the right and the responsibility of Africans to make their own policy for development”.
