Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP)

The promotion of intensive industrial agriculture in Malaysia has led to soil degradation, environmental pollution and destruction, the contamination of food with pesticides, hormones and toxins, and a dependence on fossil fuels and agrochemicals. CAP’s 2021 campaign aims to foster a sharing community that can assist in recapturing the food and seed systems. The project will advance food and seed sovereignty by building solidarity among consumers through the sharing of knowledge and seeds during Green Action Week events. Sharing communities will be using existing virtual and physical plaKorms initiated by CAP.
