20th of June event: "The new urban food agenda: addressing global challenges, developing place-based solutions". This event brings together international experts to reflect on a decade of urban food policy, and identify key levers to deepen and broaden a transformative urban food agenda.

The first panel, chaired by Kevin Morgan, will collectively discuss the role of cities in reproducing but also transforming the food system. Through examples of pioneering cities, Jane Battersby (Cape Town), Nevin Cohen (New York) and Tim Lang (London) will analyse the impact of specific policies in improving or hindering sustainability and food security outcomes, highlighting good practices, enabling mechanisms but also failures.

The second panel, chaired by Terry Marsden, will reflect on how cities are actively shaping, and being shaped by, global food system dynamics. Key questions addressed by the panelists – Harriet Friedmann, Tara Garnett and Ana Moragues-Faus - will include how cities can contribute to transforming national, European and international food governance dynamics and what are the key agents and processes that can support those transformations.
