The realisation that in the coming decades the world population will be more urban and increasingly concerned with nutrition and environmental health reinforces the need to ensure sustainable and resilient food systems and leads to the recommendation that such systems be based on appropriate land planning tools. In the surrounding cities and metropolitan regions, local, regional, and global agri-business processes have great potential for generating synergies, and the functions of production, demand, distribution, consumption, and waste management need to be analysed systemically.
In this context, the Food, Farming, and Forestry College (F3) of Universidade de Lisboa, in conjunction with the Office of the FAO in Portugal and the CPLP, is organising the 2 nd Annual conference on the theme of "Food Sustainability in Cities", which aims to generate a broad, holistic and inclusive debate that questions expectations, behaviours and policies.
The event will take place on the 2 nd of November, at 09.00, in the Salão Nobre of the Rector’s Office of Universidade de Lisboa, and is open to the public.
In the morning, there will be a round table where relevant entities and players that represent the key areas will participate. In the afternoon, speakers from several of the ULisboa Schools will promote a multi-disciplinary dialogue, to illustrate the added-value that is generated by the synergies and complementarities between the Schools and Research Centres.
