International Congress Global Peasants’ Rights
March 7, 2017 - March 10, 2017
The “Haus der Bauern” foundation organises an international congress on the issue of peasants’ rights from 7-10 March 2017 in Schwaebisch Hall, Germany.
This congress will be attended by peasants, small scale producers, rural workers as well as international organisations and numerous stakeholders.
The ‘Global Peasants’ Rights’ congress sheds light on the situation of small scale farmers and the rural population around the world, draws public attention to the importance of peasants for sustainable local and regional production of food in agroecological quality and emphasizes the need to protect their rights and their indigenous knowledge.
The goal of the congress is twofold: to increase awareness of the situation and the requirements of international small farmers and to support the UN working group for the development of a “Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas”.
