Web conference"Local food - Reimagining Regional Responses"
Collaborative approaches to building our rural resilience

December 9th, 2020
17h00-18h30 CET

As the pandemic collides with inequality and the climate and biodiversity emergencies, it is clearer than ever that we need to change our relationship to food and the people who produce it.

The ideas of innovative communities that are experimenting with ways to shorten, amplify and democratise food supply chains should be replicated, scaled up and scaled across.

At this web conference we will showcase pioneering initiatives – including the Cloughjordan Hub (IE), Oosterwold living lab (NL) involved in DESIRA project (EU) and the Ceinture AlimenTerre Liègeoise (Liege Food Belt) (BE), an example from Communities for Future – that are taking fresh approaches to building better food systems from the bottom up.

Practitioners will share insights and experiences from their regional initiatives, laying the groundwork for a facilitated discussion on how these ideas might be replicated elsewhere.
