International Children's Day

The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland, proclaimed June 1 to be International Children's Day in 1925. It is usually marked with speeches on children's rights and wellbeing, and other events involving or dedicated to children. Some people have wondered whether this day could be used to for a march of children asking the adults to protect the climate for their future.

WHY IS FAMILY FARMING SO

IMPORTANT WORLDWIDE?

  • Family and small-scale farming are inextricably linked to world food security.
  • Family farming preserves traditional food products, while contributing to a balanced diet and safeguarding the world’s agro-biodiversity and the sustainable use of natural resources.
  • Family farming represents an opportunity to boost local economies, especially when combined with specific policies aimed at social protection and well-being of communities.

AND IN AUSTRALIA --

  • Family farms are generally run in a much more sustainable fashion for the long term.
  • Family farms spend their income locally rather than take the profits elsewhere to fund big corporate management teams.
  • Family farms are essential to a vibrant Rural Australia.
  • Family farms tend to farm in ways that are much more climate friendly.
