The transformation of a food system is not without its challenges, but fortunately, we have plenty of success stories to share. Building on the success of the first Feeding Cities Conference last June, this second edition promises to be an enriching event.

Join us as we take stock of the myriad ways in which food systems are transforming, aiming to provide a space to share seeds of change. This conference will build on the four core themes that emerged from last year’s conference:

  1. Food governance and political will
  2. Funding and projectification of food initiatives
  1. Stakeholder engagement
  1. Economic system failure in supporting food system transformation

After almost four years of FUSILLI, we would like to invite you to this event to highlight best practices, share lessons learned, and discuss challenges overcome during the food system transformation process.




The conference will open with an inspiring keynote, details to be announced soon.

This part will be followed by interactive presentations and discussions following the style of the Hungry for Exchange webinar series, “Waste-Less Cities: Smart Solutions for Urban Food Sustainability”. Representatives from the City of Athens and the City of Rijeka will provide valuable insights into their best practices and planned solutions related to sustainability and food waste reduction. 

Look forward to contributions from:

  • Giorgos Keranis, Action Research Practitioner and Policy Analyst specializing in sustainable food systems and social economy.
  • Emira Brkić Karninčić, Researcher working on projects in sustainable urban development and smart city solutions as part of Rijeka’s FUSILLI team.

In the last part of the conference, you will have the chance to participate actively and share your insights into the seeds of change in a peer-led discussion around the urban role of food system transformation. This will take place in parallel breakout rooms, stimulating lively, small-group conversations around the four core themes of the conference.
