Now, here, for the planet
NOW, because it is time to act and ensure we can achieve a food system that keeps everyone in mind and excludes no one.
That sees to the health of everyone and the whole planet.
HERE, because proximity means strengthening local and sustainable economies: for small farmers, sustainable fishing and extensive livestock farming. For a fairer food chain. For neighbourhood markets and shops and for local restaurants.
FOR THE PLANET, to combat the climate emergency, prevent food waste and create a resilient food system in the face of global threats.
This year sees us taking on our strategic role, as a city, in developing sustainable food systems.
