Who is responsible for the progressive concentration of the meat industry into fewer and fewer hands, and for the spread of ultra-processed foods that, according to The Lancet, cause more deaths than smoking?

But there is hope, because multitudes of people across our planet are coming together to create change from below and to challenge a global economic order that preys on the weak and wages war against nature every day, ruthlessly exploiting human and natural resources.

How can we undermine the dominant model of food production and create a sustainable alternative based on cooperation? How can we find room to maneuver and to thrive in a complex reality where our own wellbeing and that of the ecosystems that sustain us are so closely linked and where unequal access to food is exacerbated by climate change?
