      "Rather than concentrating on what sort of food is healthy for the individual person, we must think about what kind of production system is healthy for the globe. Acting in the context of this vision of a different kind of food system, we will gain the freedom - and the power - to force change for some measure of justice in this one." Cathleen Kneen, 1987

      Everyday Experts: How people’s knowledge can transform the food system

      Everyday Experts explains how knowledge built up through rst- hand experience can help solve the crisis in the food system. It brings together fty-seven activists, farmers, practitioners, researchers and community organisers from around the world to take a critical look at attempts to improve the dialogue between people whose knowledge has been marginalised in the past and others who are recognised as professional experts.

      Using a combination of stories, poems, photos and videos, the contributors demonstrate how people’s knowledge can transform the food system towards greater social and environmental justice. Many of the chapters also explore the challenges of using action and participatory approaches to research.

      The chapters share new insights, analysis and stories that can expand our imagination of a future that encompasses:
      • making dialogue among people with different ways of understanding the world central to all decision-making
      • he re-affirmation of Indigenous, local, traditional and other knowledge systems
      • a blurring of the divide between professional expertise and expertise that is derived from experience
      • transformed relationships amongst ourselves and with the Earth to confront inequality and the environmental crisis
      You can download the entire book, or single chapters which are organised under the five themes, at the website here:
