We would like to thank you for the numerous and very interesting applications that we received following the call for this year’s Eating City Summer Campus!
The application procedure is now closed and we will be starting the selections in order to give candidates the results very shortly!
The program will include seminars, work-in-group sessions as well as recreational/cultural activities and also free time in order to stimulate dialogue and thinking among the participants and the speakers, all along the week.
Lectures will be given by international professionals working in universities, companies, local authorities and also belonging to the civil society, all related to the Eating City Network. Activities will start on Monday July 24th (late evening) with the welcome of partici pants until Tuesday August 1st morning, the day of departure.
The program for this year will include a large range of food systems issues including the leverage effect of public food serv
ice. It will focus on how new recipes should help to reduce food waste & loss and drive our food habits towards sustainability and health.
As during the previous editions, participants will be asked to write a Common Declaration all together that outlines their vision on Sustainable Food Systems according to the main theme of the campus.
This process will be supported by a staff of facilitators, during the different working group sessions taking place every day, alternately with plenary sessions.
Applicants should be aware that after the Campus, they will become ambassadors of Eating City. They will be asked to disseminate their participation and the 5th “Villarceaux Declaration” after the Campus .
Walking the line between farmer and facilitator I am passionate about power structures, patent laws, seeds, soil and global trade. Favourite food: 1 day old goats cheese.
I am a non-profit loan officer helping sustainable and mission-driven businesses to launch, grow, and scale through loan products, social capital, and business coaching.
This campus will take place in France, from July 24th to August 1st 2017, in the inspiring location of “la Bergerie de Villarceaux” in the regional natural park of Vexin, 70 km from Paris, in a 600 ha rural property, fully dedicated to sustainable development.

The Foundation Charles Leopold Mayer, Eating City supporter and partner since the very beginning, has given rise to « La Bergerie » where several partners working together create the ideal conditions to welcome and enrich the Eating city Summer Campus.
