“Eating City comes as a response to a failed extractivist economic model that prevailed for several decades in the world. Our food supply chains are broken and, as a result, we experience the warmest months ever recorded in history, with inequalities getting deeper and extremism on the rise there. There is no much more time left for action, and it is now the time of open, peer-peer networks of active citizens to co-design and scale the regenerative economy. This is the reason I join my voice with the translocal network of Eating City.”
