The insight and expertise of the Academician, Erik Orsenna, will put the notion of food sovereignty back into the reality of our society, our way of consuming and of agricultural production. Sovereignty at what scale? “Certainly European”, for Philippe Mauguin who prefers to speak of “food security” and who agrees with Sébastien Abis on the imperative need to think of sovereignty in a “united and sustainable” manner without associating it with a closing of borders.

The director of the Demeter club will provide a geopolitical perspective on the challenges of this reconquest. If the European level appears to be the most coherent, it can be associated with national policies and regional actions. It is in this spirit that the Region and its president, Alain Rousset, launched the regional food pact. Evoking food sovereignty obviously amounts to asking questions about our dependence on certain imports, our vulnerability to climatic hazards and inputs, and to addressing the issue of agroecological transition.
