On Tuesday 09 June at 11:00 (CET) the FOODSHIFT consortium will host the 3rd webinar. You can find more information here!
The aim of the webinars is to introduce the importance and challenges of local engagement to transform the EU food system. It will give a broad perspective of what cities can do to contribute to a more future-proof food system. The webinar will introduce the concept of City Labs, by presenting the processes developed by FIT4FOOD2030, focused on building the competences required by the various stakeholders/actors for the desired transformation. City Lab coordinators will share their experiences and learnings.
FIT4FOOD2030 has produced a free webinar series titled: “Towards sustainable food systems through Research and Innovation”. The series aims to advocate for responsible research and innovation (RRI) and system thinking for food system transformation. The webinar series targets local, regional and national policy makers, food chain actors, academia, stakeholder/citizen engagement organisations, NGOs, CSOs, and interested public. The goal of this webinar series is to use the FOOD 2030 policy framework and FIT4FOOD2030 project as case studies to using research and innovation (R&I) policy for food system transformation.
