Unofficial Transcript Radio #3

GRIP-UQAM activists work to transform food politics & challenge economic structure

by David Koch

To learn about some of the work being done by student activists at the Université du Québec à Montréal, I visited a small but feisty focal point of student militancy known as GRIP-UQAM.

In these days of impending climate chaos and and shrinking biodiversity, many of the student groups sponsored by the GRIP are working on projects aimed at reversing environmental destruction — with a notable focus on transforming the wasteful processes that go into the production of food.

To get the low-down on these goings-on, I spoke to GRIP-UQAM coordinator Jocelyn Darou, in their sunny downtown Montreal office.
