Edition #2: Hungry for Exchange  X Feeding Cities Conference

Transformation Agenda thumbnail

Amidst social, environmental, and economic pressures on food systems worldwide, cities increasingly take up a crucial and leading role in food system transformations. The Feeding Cities conference brought together city-region practitioners along food chains to set a common research agenda. The diverse program of keynote speakers, practitioner-led and researcher-led workshops, interactive webinars and panel discussions around strengthening practitioner-researcher collaborations has led to the setting of a common transformation Agenda.

Webinar #3: Green growth, post-growth or degrowth ?

Cities across Europe that take action for food system transformation are often challenged in collaborating with growth- or profit-oriented stakeholders. Where sustainable and healthy food for all is sometimes seen as a ‘public good’, it is difficult to make change happen in a globalized food system that is generally oriented towards economic growth. In this edition, FUSILLI Living Lab coordinators Karoliina Tuukkanen from Tampere (FI) and Line Tveiten from Oslo (NO) alongside urban plan researcher Dr. Emel Karakaya from Izmir Democracy University will explore these challenges and their strategies to deal with them.
