Working the Land, Cooling the Planet!

For 2022, the year following COP26, this calendar showcases twelve practices that are part of the solution for cooling the planet and building the world we know is possible.

The imagery for the calendar has once again been created by Rosanna Morris – the talented, socially engaged artist behind our last three sell-out calendars. The calendars are beautifully reproduced onto 100% recycled paper.

Whilst always tracing back to the land, the solutions featured here are expansive in their outlook: “Our clothing can be a carbon sink” you’ll read in April as we examine how to grow our clothes and undo the destructive impact of disposable fashion. “Let’s grow our houses!” is the rallying cry for July, as we look at the climate impact of our housing stock. Then in October, we move off the land and out to sea, looking at how climate and social justice interweave for fishing communities here and around the rest of the world.

With justice and community at their heart, these examples are accompanied by 9 more hopeful, real-world solutions to the climate crisis that we can put into practice right now.

Hemp also plays a part in the these solutions as a natural building material, fibre, soil builder and so much more! Also see our recent campaign to Grow Hemp – Overgrow The Regime. The hemp licensing regime is not fit for purpose and is stifling the green economy, British farming and public health. Our worker co-operative believes in the power of hemp-based alternatives to solve the challenges we are all facing, including health issues, ecological crisis and social instability. We feel everyone should be able to grow hemp freely, especially now.

Land Workers Alliance

As a union of land-based workers we strive to represent our members’ interests at government and policy level. We advocate for more and smaller farms, support for new entrants into farming, and for agroecology and food sovereignty to be recognised as real solutions to the multitude of social and environmental crises we currently face. We take pride in the holistic approach we take in our advocacy work, and indeed many of our campaigns significantly overlap as we consistently promote a framework for our food and land systems underpinned by the values of food sovereignty, agroecology and climate justice. We lobby for policy changes and better legislation in different jurisdictions  – with some campaigns being specific to the devolved nations of the UK, and as a member of the global peasant movement La Via Campesina we also take a transnational approach to the campaigning work we do, standing in solidarity with peasant struggles across the globe.

La Via Campesina

The International Peasants’ Voice. Globalising hope, globalising the struggle!

La Via Campesina is an international movement bringing together millions of peasants, small and medium size farmers, landless people, rural women and youth, indigenous people, migrants and agricultural workers from around the world. Built on a strong sense of unity, solidarity between these groups, it defends peasant agriculture for food sovereignty as a way to promote social justice and dignity and strongly opposes corporate driven agriculture that destroys social relations and nature. Women produce 70% of the food on earth but are marginalised and oppressed by neo-liberalism and patriarchy. They play a crucial role in La Via Campesina. The movement defends women’s rights and gender equality and struggles against all forms of violence against women. Young farmers, committed to the historical struggle for the liberation of our peoples and the transformation of our reality, are an inspiring force in the movement. They contribute to advancing Food Sovereignty globally. La Via Campesina comprises 182 local and national organisations in 81 countries from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Altogether, it represents about 200 million farmers. It is an autonomous, pluralist, multicultural movement, political in its demand for social justice while being independent from any political party, economic or other type of affiliation.
