This can be done by convening stakeholders, creating shared infrastructure, stimulating markets for healthy foods through procurement policy changes, promoting (or not!) communication campaigns, and providing financial and logistical support to subnational actors to promote healthy food initiatives and nurture local food producers.
Local councils and cities should serve as hubs to connect sustainable producers with local people, actively promote sustainable nutrition, and foster healthy food cultures together. They should use their advocacy power to pressure political parties, national governments and the EU to transform the food system.
We want to support creating that groundswell, connecting the islands of excellence across Europe.
