As part of ICLEI Africa’s #AfricanCityFoodMonth 2021 campaign, the SA Urban Food & Farming Trust shared insights and experiences from its work on the building blocks for a food culture that meets people’s nutritional needs and centers agency, independence, sustainability, resilience and autonomy. The session, titled Sustainable Food Cultures: How our appetites can transform our cities, unpacked the deceptively complex truth that our urban areas are shaped by our decisions and actions within the food system, and explored the potential to positively transform our cities by changing how we grow, make, share and consume our food.
The African City Food Month 2021 campaign is highlighting diverse, innovative, and evolving African urban food systems and providing a platform for insight and learning opportunities to support local governments and food system stakeholders in shaping nutritious and inclusive food systems.
The SA Urban Food & Farming Trust is a proud partner, alongside Rikolto, RUAF, the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and the African Centre for Cities.
