Fashioning a sustainable food system is one of the most compelling challenges of the 21st Century. Because of its multi-functional character, food is an ideal medium through which to design sustainable places, be they urban, rural or per-urban places. For all these reasons, food planning is now bringing people together from a diverse range of backgrounds, including planners, policy-makers, politicians, designers, health professionals, environmentalists, farmers, food businesses, and civil society activists among many others.
Meetings are held annually, hosted in different cities. The four meetings that have been held so far have attracted between 80-100 participants and discussed a wide variety of issues within sustainable food planning. Further details of keynote speakers and all of the meeting presentations can be found in the blog posts.
