The current way of producing, processing, transporting, consuming and wasting food is not sustainable, particularly if we want to provide food and nutrition security for our future generations. During this interactive workshop we will bring stakeholders from diverse walks of life together to imagine the food system we’d like to see in the future, and how Research & Innovation (R&I) can play a role in making this happen. This workshop is part of the EU-funded FIT4FOOD2030, supporting the European Commission to develop the FOOD 2030 policy framework and make our food system more diverse, sustainable and resilient. The results of the workshop will directly feed into the Amsterdam City Lab being set up by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The City Lab seeks to better connect food initiatives in the city to researchers and to work together to develop a set of educational activities that meet community needs and build competences.
