Building cross-country power and intelligence by creating “weaver roles” in four national food coalitions
Weaving is a real art, especially in a network or movement! HFHP is trying to finesse the art by investing from the ground up - weaving the existing fabric into new ones - and hence creating a beautiful new tapestry or beehive of food change-makers in Europe.
Practically, it means we are investing in Wir Haben Es Satt /MeineLandwirtschaft in Germany, Collectif Nourrir in France, Transitiecoalitie Voedsel in The Netherlands and Eating Better in the UK. To strengthen them according to their own set of priorities, to build up cross-country power and intelligence, each coalition has created a 'weaver' or equivalent title. Within HFHP, the weavers will support building and coordinating our Communities of Practice in Retail, Finance and Sub-nationalAction.
In the UK, we are investing in Eating Better, a movement for change of sixty organisations based in the UK working to accelerate the transition from producing and eating too much meat and dairy to a fairer, healthier and more sustainable food system that is better for animal welfare and for nature. As a community mobiliser, the weaver is spearheading the alliance's journey in diversity, equity and inclusion within the healthy and sustainable food movement in the UK. As a weaver, she will be looking atways to cross-pollinate those experiences and learnings across Europe.
