Welcome to Agora

Agora recognises that human societies in the twenty first century face particular challenges. We need to develop ways of life that are not only just in terms of human relationships and properly concern our well-being, but which are also much more sensitive to our impact on the earth and its ecosystems.

Agora works to promote active citizenship through social innovation, developing initiatives that, through their very existence, encourage reflection on primary areas of culture such as economies and exchange, communities and governance, appropriate technologies, and beliefs and values.

The Independent Food Aid Network

Agora has agreed to manage a new national initiative designed to draw together many of the most interesting and creative people working with food in relation to vulnerable people. The Independent Food Aid Network exists to:

  • Provide a forum and a collective voice for independent, grass roots food aid providers
  • Work with and promote the voices of people in need
  • Share best practice and improve provision to people in need of food aid
  • Campaign for change
  • Promote critical open-access research
  • Work to create a society where there is food security for all and food aid is no longer necessary
Agora’s Co-ordinator is working with a steering group, led by Seb Mayfield of Food Up Front¬†and the initiative will be launched¬†in autumn 2016 with meetings around the country. A recent survey of potential members strongly confirmed the proposed aims and values on which this network will be based.
Up to date news of this initiative can be found at IFAN
