The role of cities in delivering food security and sustainability outcomes: a social-ecological perspective

This workshop aims to co-produce new knowledge around how different cities tackle sustainability and food security challenges by analysing their distinct social-ecological configurations and their diverse food policies and governance systems. This participative space will include international experts and practitioners and will be restricted to 20 participants. This workshop is linked to the event “The new urban food agenda”.

Food constitutes a vehicle to understand and address current social, economic, health and environmental crises operating at different scales. Examples ranging from global food price volatility to the increase of food banks in our neighbourhoods, from climate change to biodiversity losses, and rising levels of obesity sitting alongside staggering undernutrition numbers, situate Sustainability and Food Security (SFS) as one of the main societal challenges of our time.
