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 Germany, we are investing in Wir Haben Es Satt / Meine Landwirthschaft whose goal is to create a dialogue between different actors such as farmers, climate activists and civil society organisations, to raise awareness and demand actions for a more sustainable agriculture and food systems. The weaver there engages in online communication and social media management to mobilise people to be part of their demonstrations and actions and draw attention to issues for which they are campaigning.
