“Flows of Food” is the first conference on Food Policy. December 7, 2017 at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. Check the website: www.foodcouncilmra.nl.
A unique program with first class key-notes and ample opportunity to meet with top dogs and pioneers in the food scene. Don’t miss our key-note Wayne Roberts, one of the first and powerfull thinkers on Food Policy. Roberts incorporates 20 years of profound practical experience and knowledge in developing food councils. His body of thoughts have spread from New York to Milan.
At the moment more and more metro areas are adopting a food policy in order to fight food related issues more effectively. The essence of food councils boils down to the core question: how to feed nine billion people and keep intact spaceship earth? According to Wayne Roberts the key to a comprehensive sustainable solution rests in metropolitan areas. On the one hand these globalized locations represent the broken food system, in terms of food waste, logistics, obesity, even poverty and injustice. On the other hand these metro areas are also the epicentre of knowledge, creativity, technology and social capital.
