Research output: Book/ReportAnthology or Edited Book

Abstract

Everyday Experts explains how knowledge built up through first-hand experience can help solve the crisis in the food system. It brings together fifty-seven activists, farmers, practitioners, researchers and community organisers from around the world in 28 original chapters to take a critical look at attempts to improve the dialogue between people whose knowledge has been marginalised in the past and others who are recognised as professional experts.

Using a combination of stories, poems, photos and videos, the contributors demonstrate how people’s knowledge can transform the food system towards greater social and environmental justice. Many of the chapters also explore the challenges of using action and participatory approaches to research.

The chapters share new insights, analysis and stories that can expand our imagination of a future that encompasses:

*making dialogue among people with different ways of understanding the world central to all decision-making
*the re-afirmation of Indigenous, local, traditional and other knowledge systems
a blurring of the divide between professional expertise and expertise that is derived from experience
*transformed relationships amongst ourselves and with the Earth to confront inequality and the environmental crisis
