Infrastructural, high-tech, and top-down agricultural investments to address immediate food and health security needs often overshadows developing resilient food and agricultural systems, particularly in the context of climate change. This session will draw on real world examples from across the globe to explore ways that Arts, Culture, and Heritage can address issues of food and agricultural sustainability and resilience while also considering the needs of marginalised groups and transforming social inequalities. Hosted by PRAXIS in partnership with the Americas Regional Partner, Angelica Arias, Climate Heritage Network, Metropolitan Institute of Heritage-Quito, Ecuador.
