The Agroecological Movement: A network of networks
Organizations in the agroecological movement participate in several social networks. CEPAGRO, for example, supports farmers who go through the agroecological transition in the Ecovida Network of Agroecology, which, in turn, is part of the National Articulation of Agroecology (ANA). Through networks, agroecological organizations develop sustainability projects and expand access to healthy food, while seeking to influence political polices and institutions. In the following videos, three members of CEPAGRO talk about their views on the importance of networks for agroecology in the city and in the country.
Maria Denis, past administrative director of the Center for Studies and Promotion of Group Agriculture (CEPAGRO), talks about the collaboration through networks.
