How are cities engaging with food system transformation? FoodSHIFT webinar, 13 September, 15:00-16:00
City councils – either led by the city government itself or by citizens – are key to involve citizens and local stakeholders in designing and implementing local public policies.
Speakers from Berlin City Council and Amsterdam Food Council will present their initiatives on how to effectively engage with citizens, community organisations and city governments when it comes to local sustainable food policies and activities.
This webinar will be chaired by Beatrice Walthall from the Leibniz Centre for Agriculture Landscape Research (ZALF), and joined by Dirk Washer from SUSMETRO, a planning and research bureau developing Sustainable Design for Metropolitan Landscapes bringing together nature and society.
