8th Informed Cities Forum: join our webinar

Sitopia: rethinking our lives through food


Even though the 8th Informed Cities Forum, scheduled to take place on 2-3 April 2020 in Lucca, Italy, was cancelled, we believe that fruitlful discussions are possible, even when we can't meet in person.

We are happy to invite you to join us for an Informed Cities webinar with Carolyn Steel, who was scheduled to give a keynote address at the 8th Informed Cities Forum.

In her (online) keynote talk, "Sitopia: rethinking our lives through food", Carolyn will present her perspective on rural-urban linkages, sustainable food systems, and COVID-19's new and ever evolving contributions to the dialogue. A moderated question and answer session will follow the presentation.

The webinar will take place on 2 April at 13.30 CET.  It will be recorded and shared on the Rural-Urban Europe and Informed Cities websites.
