The 1st Eating City Workshop in the framework of the EU Project “Food Wave – Empowering Urban Youth for Climate Action” inviting participants aged 18-35 working and/or studying around food sustainability and climate change took place on November 7 – 8 2020.
Food Wave aims to create awareness on sustainable patterns of food consumption and production for climate change mitigation, activate young people and enable them to influence institutional decisions, so they can lead us to a sustainable global food system by 2050.

The network consists of 17 cities, 4 municipal agencies and 8 civil society organizations closely linked with the cities. C40, the international network of cities engaged in the fight against climate change, is also affiliated to the project.
