On Thursday, February 25th, 2021 from 1:00 – 2:30PM EST, CAGJ/AGRA Watch will present a free Webinar:“Billionaire or Community Solutions to Climate Chaos?“
- Million Belay, Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa
- Tom Goldtooth, Indigenous Environmental Network/Climate Justice Alliance
- Jill Mangaliman, Got Green/Climate Justice Alliance
- Silvia Ribeiro, ETC Group
On February 16th, one of the richest men on earth, Bill Gates, will release his vision of climate solutions in his new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster”. Climate change is one of the crises used by Gates and his Foundation to justify urgent, technocratic “solutions” for altering food systems around the world.
In response, AGRA Watch aims to amplify the work of social movements organizing in Seattle and around the world for Climate Justice. To counter top-down, billionaire expertise as the means of solving our world’s most pressing issues, panelists will present an alternative approach centered on Food Sovereignty, with communities leading the way to a climate just future.

The mission of AGRA Watch is to challenge the dominant development ideology pushed by governments, corporations, and “private” philanthropic actors as they try to expand our corporate-driven, industrial model of agriculture into Africa. Chief among these “private” actors are the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and their subsidiary, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).
