FOOD FOR CITIES – symposium & conference

Archive
Den første konference om bæredygtige fødevaresystemer i byerne afholdes i København den 28. april 2015 kl. 9.00-16.00 på Hotel- og Restaurantskolen. Konferencen udforsker byers rolle i bæredygtige fødevaresystemer og hvilke muligheder, vi har for at udvikle et demokratisk fødevaresystem, der skaber sammenhængskraft mellem land og by til gavn og glæde for samfundet og planeten.

Til Food For Cities kan du bl.a. opleve Tim Lang, Emile Frison og en lang række danske, nordiske og internationale talere, der vil belyse fødevaresystemets potentialer fra en række nye vinkler:

  • Hvordan kan et bæredygtigt fødevaresystem skabe sammenhængskraft mellem land og by?
  • Hvorledes kan fødevaresystemer blive nøglen til en sundere planet, mere social lighed, bæredygtig vækst og omdrejningspunktet for et godt liv for mennesker i byen og på landet?
  • Hvilken rolle har byerne i forhold til at udvikle fremtidens bæredygtige fødevaresystem og hvad kan vi gøre for at lykkes med dette?
  • Hvordan kan det bæredygtige fødevaresystem blive til morgendagens undervisning og fremtidens velfærdsløsninger i kommuner og byer?

Programmet vil bestå af korte, energifyldte indspark og visioner fra talerstolen, der skal danne grundlag for en visionær dialog. Du vil som deltager blive involveret i at skabe input til et idekatalog over hvilke muligheder byerne har for at tage de første skridt mod et mere bæredygtigt fødevaresystem. Gennem hele dagen vil elever fra Hotel- og Restaurantskolen levere overraskende bud på fremtidens, bæredygtige mødeforplejning.

Konferencen henvender sig til alle, der arbejder med medborgerskab, innovative velfærdsløsninger, undervisning, græsrødder, forandringsprocesser, madkultur, formidling, politikudvikling, omlægning, forvaltning i det offentlige eller staten inden for det multidisciplinære felt omkring undervisning, sundhed og bæredygtighed.

A sustainable and resilient food system is the key to a healthy environment, social equity, economic growth and liveability for both urban and rural citizens. This is a call to action directed at influential decision makers to take necessary actions with a new, ambitious urban food strategy.

Background

Over the past 15 years, Copenhagen has converted the 60,000 daily meals it serves in all public kitchens within the municipality to 90% organic – all accomplished within existing budgetary parameters. In itself, this represents an investment in the education of staff in over 1,400 kitchens. Further, the Municipality of Copenhagen has developed a school meal system for the 6,000 pupils of the Copenhagen public school system that is 75 % organic – and aim to reach 90 % in 2015.

The forthcoming symposium on the role of cities in sustainable food systems is the first step in a multi-year, on-going intervention in Copenhagen. The organising partners, Chora Connection and Copenhagen House of Food have joined forces to gather local decision-makers in Copenhagen with a number of internationally recognized experts to explore how we can support broader social, environmental and economic sustainability through our food system, and at the same time forge deeper cohesion between urban and rural areas.

Copenhagen House of Food and Chora Connection have entered into a partnership to create a framework for sharing knowledge, best practises and tools regarding a sustainable and resilient food system. We want the symposium to be a call for action directed at people in a position to make actual changes and promote even more ambitious urban food strategies for Copenhagen and beyond.
