Hi Everyone! Please feel free to share comments, resources, questions throughout the session!
Hi - a question for the speakers - are you seeing industry’s messages picked up by government? Where/how?
any way to demand line speed slow down?
Thanks for the good questions - I will keep track of them and bring them into the Q/A session in a little bit
Keep them coming!
I wonder if the speakers have any insights about how to develop circular local food economies/systems and how they think different sectors can best support these (like government, philanthropy, etc.)
What role have consumers played in pushing the change in direct-to-consumer fish sales in Rhode Island? Were they vocal in asking for or supporting the shift?
How can funders play a role in pushing for the anti-trust enforcement and other policies that would address the levels of corporate power your stories portray?
isn’t the fish story also in the meat and other food industrial systems?/ Ship overseas and back again?
Is the RI change temporary, or do you expect to continue to have the option of selling off the boat when restaurants and export markets open back up? I expect the fish brokers are pushing back.
Have any of the speakers/NGOs established specific YouTube channels or other social media tools to tell their stories directly to "consumers"?
Does using the “crisis” narrative play a role in getting us the same policy we have always had?
I have to leave but wanted to express my gratitude to all the speakers and organizers.
Thank you everyone!
