The world is facing enormous challenges that need to be addressed urgently. Still, the strong polarisation of the social and political debates makes it extremely difficult to find and implement effective solutions. The struggles to articulate an inclusive and constructive debate are clearly noticeable in the field of global food security.
Taking this into consideration, Re-Imagine Europa will organize a presentation on New Narratives for the Steering and Expert Committees of the Task Force on Sustainable Food Systems and Innovation on November 16th, 2022. The presentation will be carried out by Andrzej Nowak, RIE’s Chief Narrative Scientist, and Marcin Napiórkowski, Contemporary Mythologies Scholar, and show how the proliferation and development of narratives that build citizens’ beliefs and emotions can shape highly polarised public opinions about food systems and sustainable agriculture.
