First Olympic Seed Festival and 17th Peliti Seed Festival, April 19-22, 2017
The institution of Olympic Seed Festivals was proposed by Peliti (www.peliti.gr) during the Global Citizens’ Assembly which took place between 14-16 October 2016 in the Hague. The Global Citizens’ Assembly was organized by Navdanya (http://navdanya.org) and Seed Freedom (seedfreedom.info).
By means of the Olympic Seed Festivals we transfer the Global Citizens’ Assembly to various parts of the world. We also transfer a message about the growth of the seeds of a new culture based on love and co-operation for the earth and the seed, for the air, a culture that does not separate the natural environment from human beings. We specifically refer to the seeds of traditional varieties, varieties saved by farmers for many thousands of years.
