The University of Turin and the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform’s Leadership Group on Food waste, food systems and the bioeconomy hosted a #EUCircularTalks event on the role of cities in boosting the circularity of food systems. The event aimed to share insights and best practices on how to design and build circular food systems that foster the urban food transformation.

Relevance for Circular Systemic Solutions
Using a holistic and multi-stakeholder approach, this event aimed to understand the new role played by local authorities, food companies, farmers, start-ups, digital platforms and individuals in bringing about inclusive, resilient, safe and diverse urban food systems.
The webinar’s discussions considered the entire value chain and presented many relevant case studies, including developing practices across the value chain and strategic documentation such as New York City's 10-year food policy plan, which considers the entire value chain and local actors and provides a framework for a more economically equitable, sustainable and healthy food system.
The webinar recording may be interesting viewing for cities and regions developing a Circular Systemic Solution that focuses on or involves local food systems.
