How do we solve the global food challenge in ever-growing cities? What solutions are already in the making?
Citizens and experts from civil society, local authorities, research organisations, and business will come and share their experience on how they are trying to change their local food systems in practice. Our speakers include guests from Belgium, Honduras, Vietnam, Indonesia, Brazil, the Netherlands, the USA, Tanzania, Ecuador and more.
How can we improve children’s health and nutrition at school? What role do food start-ups play in catalysing new food solutions? How can smallholder farmers get their products to city markets? How does food contribute to reducing cities’ greenhouse gas emissions? And what governance mechanisms can ensure that all actors are represented in cities’ food policies?
Rikolto and the Belgian city of Leuven invite you to discover how cities around the world are contributing to the shift towards a more sustainable, healthy and fair food system. And we want you to contribute.
