The Sustainable Food Movement: The Local, Slow and Justice Food Solutions to the Global Food CrisisISTR's 9th International Conference Kadir Has University, Istanbul, Turkey, July 7-10, 2010 (2010)
AbstractFood is more than a commodity. The economic aspect of food needs to be integrated and balanced with the environmental and societal aspects of a sustainable food system. The author argues that a new movement for sustainable food is emerging as exemplified in the growing local (locavore), slow food and food justice movements. Drawing on the concepts of sustainability and the observations of growing food trends, the paper offers a new analysis of social movements between the global and the local. The environmental, social and economic frameworks of sustainability give local, “slow” and sovereignty solutions to the current global food crisis.
