Food for thought

Summary

    The URBACT Knowledge Hub brings together good practices from across the EU, with the latest urban trends, to fill the gaps and make sure that the learning is within everyone's reach. Since 2013, URBACT has supported eight networks working on topics linked to sustainable food and urban agriculture and pulled together their insights to help cities take action - some good food for thought!

They are a primary cause of environmental degradation and significantly contribute to socio-economic and health inequalities. Only a food systems approach can identify effective actions to accelerate climate impacts and reduce inequalities.

    Since 2013, URBACT has supported 11 networks to learn from each other on the topics of sustainable food and urban agriculture :

    Thanks to URBACT, more than 60 cities have led the transition towards more sustainable local food ecosystems. URBACT is pulling together the insights from these cities and beyond to help cities take action. Check all the ingredients below!
