Food to Feed the Climate Justice: urban food solutions for a fairer world
Food systems represent at the same time one of the causes and consequences of the current climate emergency and growing inequalities, it is evident that there can be no climate justice without bold and innovative actions from our cities. Food systems are indeed part of the solution to ensure that people have the necessary means and resources for a healthy life, without undermining the integrity and stability of the ecosystems.
Civil society and citizens are pivotal to the debate around the transformation of food systems, since they are the drivers of political change, being directly impacted by local and global policies. Therefore, the 8th MUFPP Global Forum aims at exploring how food systems can become one of the most powerful leverages for achieving a fairer world, creating a space for cities’ delegates to turn challenges into solutions, for a more prosperous future.
