Getting participants off the beaten tracks, opening their minds to new perspectives, to new collaborations. Creating a space to imagine together the solutions to preserve land for food around cities: the objective of IUFN’s international workshop LAND FOR FOOD was achieved!
Gathering more than 180 people over 2 days (researchers, local authorities, national decision-makers, associations, foundations, businesses, farmers, informed citizens, etc), the event was a succession of creative moments where plenty of ideas were exchanged. First of all, an Open Forum with 15 discussion groups around a key question: “What new questions, new perspectives and what new links around land can we imagine together in order to sustainably feed our cities?”. Then, a buzzing day at the heart of UNESCO with 11 co-design workshops addressing particular challenges of this complex question, featuring invited expert speakers.
