This course includes
Food citizens are motivated to organise and support food communities. Their often-voluntary work motivates everyday consumers to join food communities for not merely good quality food, but also to raise awareness about the social, environmental, and economic principles of food citizenship. A recognition of the values and guiding principles that inform such communities contributes to the long-term, well-funded operation of these foods systems. The goal of this course is to learn from active and successful mentors within food communities to increase learners’ capacity to develop, sustain, and amplify their local food communities and thus, broaden the base of energetic food citizens in Europe.
Week One: The journey of a food citizen
Week Two: Building Stronger Food Communities through Communication
Week Three: Leadership in food communities
The 3 live sessions will feature engaging speakers sharing stories from the field and are opportunities for the learners to exchange experiences and build connections.
