As part of its biennial conferences, IUFN is happy to invite you to a new international workshop, LAND FOR FOOD, Land use & Sustainable Food Governance of City-Regions on April 24th and 25th 2014 in Paris (France). It will address a central question : How can we reconcile land use policies with local food policies?
Held over two days in the heart of Paris, the LAND FOR FOOD provisional program is build on interaction. It will start with an Open forum the will invite participants to deconstruct some commonly held beliefs and to discuss together ‘Land for food by 2050’ foresight scenarios designed with our partners. On the second day, you are invited to take part in multi-disciplinary co-design workshops, resolutely oriented towards practical innovation around arable land preservation, rural-urban linkages or urban farming potential as well as policy tools such as food flow analysis or food sensitive planning.
JOIN other local authorities, local decision-makers, and international researchers for this unique occasion to design together the future of local food policies for urban regions.
