WE, FOOD AND OUR PLANET: FOOD AND CITIES

An initiative promoted by the Barilla Foundation, the Municipality of Parma, the UNESCO Parma – Creative City of Gastronomy Foundation.

Around 55% of the world's population currently live in urban settlements and the trend is expected to increase. This poses major challenges for every stage of the food system, from the field to the table. In this context, cities are innovation laboratories for more sustainable resource management, fairer access to healthy food, and new forms of global citizenship.

The initiative is taking place in the framework of Parma 2020 - Italian Capital of Culture and aims to reflect on the role that cities are called upon to play to build a more virtuous food system and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined in the UN’s 2030 Agenda.

WE, FOOD, OUR PLANET: FOOD AND CITIES

The event will depict broad scenarios and suggest good practices on the topics of food, sustainability, the fight against waste and the promotion of healthier and more sustainable diets, with the aim of identifying a series of recommendations that can help cities move towards a more responsible development of food systems in urban and peri-urban areas.
