The urban population surpassed the rural population for the first time in human history.

 

Cities and societies have historically formed in their relationship with food. This relationship has been lost, and city and countryside have come to be seen as two distinct realities, which do not dialogue, have boundaries that divide them, and are often managed independently.

 

The urban food environment does not allow a true exercise of the power of choice. People eat badly; much is wasted; little is known about the origin of foods and the impacts of their production and distribution. - This narrative can no longer take place in the contemporary setting and challenges.

 

 

To support the transformation of perspective and action, we focus on the equity and circularity of urban food systems, seeking to ensure resilient cities with healthy, fair and affordable food for all.
