We’re delighted to announce that on Friday 5th November We Feed the World will be open to audiences in Glasgow for the COP26 Climate Conference. A selection of prints from the original exhibition is going on display at Mcleod Hall in the Pearce Institute (840-860 Govan Rd, Govan, Glasgow G51 3UU).
The Pearce Institute will play host to a number of events throughout the COP. To see the exhibition simply attend one of the events listed on the Center for Human Ecology website or attend the open day on Friday 5th November.
Works available to see in Glasgow include a crofting community of the Isles of Uist by Scottish photographer Sophie Gerrard, a Slovakian woman farmer by Tina Hillier and Indonesian seed savers by Martin Westlake.
Rowan Phillimore from The Gaia Foundation said “We Feed the World is a celebration of the smallholder farmers and fisherfolk who are improving soil health, increasing seed diversity, regenerating nature, championing community-based solutions and ultimately, cooling the planet. How we produce our food is one of the most critical aspects of dealing with climate disruption, and a shift to agroecological farming which works with rather than against Nature, is vital. The farmer stories featured in We Feed the World offer a powerful insight into regenerative agriculture in action – the challenges, the resilience and the abundance. It’s important that they are part of the conversations at COP26 and we’re delighted that some of the works will be on display in Mcleod Hall as a backdrop to so many important events.”
