Leuven recently launched the EcoFoodMap: an interactive tool that maps the food system in and around Leuven. The tool provides the necessary information about all initiatives, actors, experts and indicators in the Leuven food system. The goal is to stimulate new collaborations and provide insights that further improve connections and decision-making for a more sustainable and resilient urban food system.
In 2018 the network organization Leuven2030 launched its food strategy, titled ‘Food Connects’. The strategy was built co-creatively with a diversity of food actors and entails all aspects of the food system: production, processing, distribution, consumption, social inclusion, etc. Food Connects is more than a strategic framework for a sustainable and resilient urban food system in Leuven, it is also a vibrant network of multiple stakeholders that act for change.
