Making a difference in food security and nutrition


Daily Meditation

On the occasion of CFS50, Listening to the Earth is offering brief meditation sessions daily from 09.45am to 10.00am in the FAO Meditation Room (A-250).

Practicing short and simple meditations during this time will help you reduce stress and connect to yourself, others and nature. Meditations will be guided by Lissia Amach, a certified relaxation therapist, yoga instructor, and co-founder of the Listening to the Earth movement.

Come pause, unwind, be re-energized, and go through the week with calmness, peace, and joy! Upon request by CFS 50 side-event organizers, a Listening to the Earth trained facilitator can offer a moment of mindfulness to open/close your event.

Opening Reception on 10 Monday 2022

Aquatic blue foods are essential to global food and nutrition security, providing billions of people with protein and essential nutrients that are not easily replaced. They are especially important for coastal and rural communities including those that are highly vulnerable to climate change. However, these resources have been undervalued and overlooked in global food and nutrition dialogues. Efforts are needed to bring aquatic blue foods into food system decision-making and policies.

Aquatic Blue Food Coalition members Environmental Defense Fund and the Safe Seaweed Coalition have teamed up to host this opening reception. Join us for beverages and light refreshments, including tasty seaweed canapes.

Time: after the evening session on Monday, 10 October 2022
