Eating City Platform
Eating City is a multi-year program of activities, launched in 2010, established by the Consortium Risteco, Terre Citoyenne, co-funded by the CLM foundation for Human Progress in Paris, and locally, for each of the different events, by other public and private partners. The aim of the program is to create opportunities of international meeting, to elaborate case studies and a series of publications with concrete proposals useful for public and private decision makers working upstream and downstream of the food chain and also for food industry and food service.
The Eating City Summer Campus is currently in its 5th year.
In the truly inspiring location of the Bergerie de Villarceaux, near to Paris, 30 young professionals aged 22-32 spent more than a week together learning and sharing their ideas to shift the current food system paradigm leading to a written “declaration” aimed at alerting stakeholders across the whole food system. “This declaration is a call to action. Critical collaborations, opportunities, and issues are needed to reduce the environmental impact of food, improve food business practices, and increase nutritional consumption.”
