Panel Discussion “The Impact of Local Alternatives within the Globalised Food System – Can we achieve a sustainable path?"
Within the frame of the project “Map Your Meal”, GEU is organising a panel discussion entitled "The Impact of Local Alternatives within the Globalised Food System – Can we achieve a sustainable path?", which will be held on November 9th, 2015 from 9.30- 13.00 at the Strovolos Cultural Center.
The discussion aims to explore how local community-based agricultural initiatives can impact the global food system, within the framework of the new UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the same time, it will give the opportunity to participants to discuss and reflect on how citizens and communities can get involved in contributing towards more sustainable food production and consumption patterns.
The event will feature expert speakers in the field on food security, and alternative food systems, with the aim to gather recommendations on the topic, which will then be shared to all relevant policy makers.
* The discussion will be held in English
