Description and Training Objectives
The Workshop: Promoting the Right to Adequate Food is a two and a half-day workshop that aims to strengthen the capacities of members of the National Food Coalition to promote the right to adequate food in the country. At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:
1) Arrive at a common understanding of human rights in general, and the right to adequate food, in particular;
2) Apply human rights norms and standards to activities related to the right to adequate food; and
3) Promote the right to adequate food in the Philippines.
30 representatives of member organizations of the National Food Coalition are expected to participate in this Workshop.
Every effort will be taken to ensure that neither sex constitutes less than 40 percent of the participants.
The Workshop is built on the principles of applied learning, which entails learning while doing. Applied learning is relevant and meaningful in the context of promoting the right to adequate food because it encourages linking learning activities to real life active engagement.
