On 16 October 2013 the FOODLINKS team organised the conference Sustainable food communities of practice – meet and eat to present the results of its three-year project. The conference focused on “Good cooperation between science, society and policy promotes sustainable food consumption and production” looking more particularly into:
- How short food supply chains can effectively work as policy tools;
- How to maximise the benefits of sustainable public procurement of food;
- How to implement sustainable food strategies in European cities.
The conference made a special effort to actively engage the participants’ experience and knowledge in the field, and to verify the findings from the project. The conference experiences are summarised in the video below:
