The webinar “How can cities future-proof food systems?” was the occasion to launch the Energy Cities Hub “Future-proof food systems and land policies” aiming at exploring ways and strategies to accelerate the transition towards sustainable and resilient food systems, and to build new territorial solidarity via land and food policy. 

A common reflection about the crucial role of cities in food systems transition was moderated by Energy Cities through an overview of inspiring examples from cities around Europe, committed in making the journey from “Farm to Fork” more sustainable and an analysis of the EU main food policies and strategies on sustainable food systems.

As a guest speaker from the city of Albertville, Sandrine Deternay shared the experience of the city, stressing the relevance of networking and cooperation among cities.
