Lyon “Delivering” Workshop II on 4-6 June 2014

2nd 2,5-day international workshop to discuss “delivering”

The theme of Delivering explores ways to distribute, share and procure local food inside the city. It includes more sustainable and less carbon intensive delivery systems giving efficient opportunities to local production; enabling direct links between supply and demand for sustainable food; facilitating the transition of existing distribution market actors towards greater sustainability and lower carbon intensity; stimulating the emergence of new ones (e.g. food businesses, retail…) and other local initiatives (e.g. markets, purchasing groups, networks, transparency in food chain…)

In this theme, partners propose to firstly consider the “How?” of short food circuit, identifying new ways of selling and establishing connections between farmers and the city by an environmental friendly distribution. Secondly, to ensure retail diversity in the cities the “Where?” will be addressed, i.e. the offer of sustainable food products at existing and new selling points and the potential role of branding or labeling. Thirdly, regarding access, the question “For whom?” shall be tackled ensuring acces for all and providing sustainable and healthy products to communities
