Food Trails cities

Almost eight million Europeans live in the project’s 11 cities. The 'Living Labs' set up in these cities will enable collaboration between these citizens and their city to design food policy that empowers their community; makes the farm-to-fork journey sustainable; promotes a zero-waste use of resources; promotes environmentally friendly behaviour change and ensures people have healthy and secure diets. 

Another of the project’s key aims is to strengthen the network of cities committed to changing their food systems to be more sustainable and beneficial. Food Trails hopes to do this by transforming mayors into trendsetters to generate impacts among a wider set of cities.
