Edible Cities Network Conference
Making Cities Edible
Join the Edible Cities Network for its 1st Annual Conference, held live online over two days, 16th & 17th February 2022.
Exploring the power of urban food innovation
With rapid urbanisation comes a series of sustainability and social challenges for cities - from rapid resource consumption and overuse to growing waste and pollution, social instability. The conference "Making Cities Edible" will bring together leading researchers, policymakers and city administrators, civil society actors, green city activists and entrepreneurs to discuss the power that urban food innovation - from community kitchens to urban farms - has for tackling a number of these challenges.
The conference is organised by the Edible Cities Network (EdiCitNet) project, led by Ina Säumel. Funded by the European Commission, the project has been working since 2018 to make cities around the world better places to live.
