Join the GROW campaign

Together with Oxfam, I am part of a global movement of people who believe that everyone can have access to a sufficient amount of food and I am helping build a world where:

  • Food prices have been stabilised and their levels ensure that families can meet their food needs;
  • Small farmers are recognised for the key role they play in food production;
  • People affected by climate change receive the support they need to adapt to it;
  • Local communities everywhere have access to land.
By signing up to the GROW campaign, I am joining a worldwide movement of citizens who are committed to food justice. I agree to share this campaign with my family and friends. (Please fill out all fields below.)

 
 
 
 


Campaign Themes

FOOD PRICE SPIKES
La flambée des prix alimentairesWhen you spend 80% of your income on food, as many poor families are forced to do, a sudden increase in food prices can be devastating.
SUPPORT FOR SMALL-SCALE FARMING
L'agriculture à petite échelleSmall-scale farmers are too often left behind in development efforts. It is high time we gave them the support they deserve, so that they can realize their full potential.
CLIMATE CHANGE
Les changements climatiques icône Rising temperatures are causing crop yields to fall, while extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and severe, with devastating impacts.
LAND GRABS
L'accaparement des terres icône All over the world, land transactions are forcing vulnerable farmers to leave the land that guarantees their livelihood. This land is then used to produce biofuels or food exports, or simply for speculation that drives up profits.
