Food policy councils and other forms of citizen engagement in food policymaking are crucial elements to successful food system transformation, a new Food Trails report has found.
During the pandemic, the need for food aid skyrocketed in cities all over Europe. But how can municipalities build strategies that are dignified and deliver the help that is needed?
Food Trails is a four-year EU-funded Horizon 2020 project aiming to translate in Europe the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact’s collective commitment to integrated urban food policies into measurable and long-term progress towards sustainable food systems. 11 European cities, with universities and stakeholders, will co-design pilot actions as leverage points for FOOD 2030 urban food policies development, involving also 21 worldwide follower cities.
