Q&A with Edmond Pruteanu of Mentors Without Borders

Edmond Pruteanu speaks about his motivation for setting up Mentors Without Borders, a group of passionate professionals who are teaching young people from all over the world how to enjoy the process of setting goals and taking steps towards these goals in their chosen fields.

The Food Journey

The Food Journey, held over three sessions in September, allowed participants to delve deep into the history and travels of food, plants, people and traditions, drawing on the knowledge and experience of all taking part.

What does food mean to me, you, us?

Constanza Monterrubio Solís, Mama D Ujuaje, Gary Martin and Merelyn Valdivia Díaz shared their journeys and the transformative experiences which sculpted and informed the approaches they now take with food issues they engage with. Through the lenses of biocultural heritage, critical food advocacy, Community Centred Knowledge, local product commercialisation and Farmer Field Schools, our speakers weaved stories and experiences which sit at the intersections of justice, power and resilience.

Weaving land, life and justice within, through and beyond colonisation

In the first event of the GEN In Conversation Series, Octaviana Valenzuela Trujillo, Wangui wa Kamonji and Camille Barton shared their lived experiences of coloniality, whilst unpacking the current opportunity we are faced with: to re-consider the path we have been on as a global community and sow seeds to create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
