Resilient urban and peri-urban agriculture

Resilient urban and peri-urban agriculture | Energy Transition in Europe | www.energy-cities.eu | Scoop.it
The City of Rome developed a participatory urban gardening project. The aim of the project is two-fold: it fights social exclusion and poverty and allows brownfield recovery.
Working with NGOs, citizens, disadvantaged people and minorities, the city uses the urban and suburban agriculture as a means to improve governance processes. Alongside employment policy, social and intercultural dialogue has a pre-eminent role to play. The importance of other factors such as housing, health, culture and communication should also be acknowledged.

WWF urgers UK to transform farmland to boost food resilience and tackle nature crisis - Climate Action

WWF urgers UK to transform farmland to boost food resilience and tackle nature crisis - Climate Action | Energy Transition in Europe | www.energy-cities.eu | Scoop.it
A WWF report reveals that - at a time of global food insecurity - half of the UK's wheat harvest each year (equivalent to 11bn loaves of bread) is being used to feed livestock in an "inherently inefficient" process that is fuelling climate change and driving nature's decline in the UK and overseas.

Sustainable diets: a new perspective to include the less affluent

Sustainable diets: a new perspective to include the less affluent | Energy Transition in Europe | www.energy-cities.eu | Scoop.it
Based on a literature review on low-income people (defined here as the poorest 40% in terms of standard of living) food diets, this Issue Brief presents key elements on the practices and the relationship that this category of population has with sustainable food. The objective is to better qualify their food behaviors and aspirations, particularly with respect to the rest of the population, in order to characterize the participation of this social group in the transition to sustainable food. Finally, it is a question of identifying the conditions for a true co-construction of sustainable food paradigms, in a food justice perspective.

Public Policies & Governance for Territorial Food Systems

Public Policies & Governance for Territorial Food Systems | Energy Transition in Europe | www.energy-cities.eu | Scoop.it

The transition towards territorial food systems requires new public policies that consider innovative and effective formulas for participatory governance, among other facilitating elements. Food democracy impacts citizen empowerment when it comes to bringing together actors for this necessary action for change. The local perspective and the consolidation of participatory structures can be nurtured through networks such as those promoted by the URBACT Programme through Local Action Groups.

School canteens supporting sustainable territorial food systems  | Energy Transition in Europe | www.energy-cities.eu | Scoop.it

School meals linked to local production are a major lever for initiating new food governance at the local level and thus co-constructing sustainable food systems at the territorial level. Following an in-depth study of the food systems of 14 territories in 8 countries, the Let's Food association, in partnership with Eating City, offers a comparative approach of school collective catering systems in order to highlight
good practices with regard to the various SDGs. set by the UN. These results are based on in-depth
bibliographic research as well as numerous interviews with local stakeholders.
In order to accelerate the transition for all, the sharing of good associative, private and
institutional practices is essential.
