The aim of the Eating City platform is to create opportunities of international meeting, to elaborate case studies and 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 operators and buyers.
Half day conferences present a series of experiences and case studies. Thematic workshops gather participants with diversified work experience (from universities, research centers, companies, local authorities, civil society etc.), during one day and half, to think, share and make together concrete propositions looking at food production, food consumption and human labour. Facilitators guide the workshop process, following a methodology including plenary and working group sessions, to identify and elaborate on ideas with the search of points of convergence, synergies, syntheses and new proposals. The outcomes of each interactive workshop is organised into a report written in the language of the meeting, that includes the outcomes of the group sessions and the common propositions.
