Through groundbreaking cases written by key actors on the ground, this issue of Farming Matters magazine brings to the forefront how agroecology coupled with perspectives such as feminism and indigenous cosmologies has been transforming our economy and society. These insights offer pertinent lessons for the pursuit of new values for new times.

This issue of Farming Matters was published in October 2020 by CIDSE, the AgriCultures Network and Cultivate!. It was also presented by powerful speakers during a webinar on 7 October 2020.
