Latin-American School for Food Systems Resilience (ALLSA 2019): Transformative socio-environmental learning: fostering food systems innovation grounded in local knowledge took place from 14 to 25 September 2019 in Cusco, Peru. The Academy was hosted by Association ANDES, in collaboration with GEN Alumni, at the Hacienda Paukartika near Cuzco, Peru, and focused on socio-ecological systems as ways to re-calibrate humanity’s relationship with nature. ALLSA examined possibilities for transforming ways to produce and consume food, as well as to assess food security and food sovereignty. The Academy brought together 23 young Latin Americans between 20 and 35 years old, from eight countries in the region. Participants included Indigenous and local knowledge holders, scientists, students and practitioners engaged in and committed to the sustainability and resilience of food systems.
