Navdanya in collaboration with India International Centre invites you to another year of participation in Navdanya's annual festival Bhoomi, based on Annapurna: Feeding the World, on the 1st of October, 2014 at the India International Centre.

The Right to Food is the natural right of all beings born on this planet. The Right to food is also being recognised as a human right. And Annapurna is a metaphor of the abundant and eternally renewable capacity of the Earth to provide food for all the living beings sharing this planet, provided we do not violate her sanctity by poisoning her. For the Right to Food inherently means the right to access safe, nutritious and culturally appropriate food. Viewed in this perspective, Annapurna becomes the symbol of Food Security, Food Safety and Food Sovereignty and Feeding the World is an act embedded in sustainability, integrity and equity, honouring the contributions of our small farmers and women.

This year's edition of Bhoomi will bring to you the voices of people who are deeply committed to ensuring the Right to Food through praxis, reflection as well as cultural expression. They will share with you how agro-ecology and a reconnection to our food and its source can indeed Feed the World nurturing, affordable and relishing food.

Aptly named Abundant Earth, the dinner which will follow the day's event is a tribute to Earth's carrying, nurturing and sustaining capacity as reflected by the diversity of our table.

* Lunch: Please register for lunch. (Only those with prior Registrations for lunch can be catered to)
