"Together with the other participants, I had the chance to learn from practitioners themselves about the challenges and opportunities food communities are facing, while simultaneously exploring my leadership skills and personal power. The course inspired me to integrate non-violent communication practice into my day-to-day life, but also to look into new forms of organization and decision-making. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the sessions, but also the learning platform as it is not only intuitive but offers great support to delve deeper into the bits and bolts of the broad spectrum of food citizenship."

"The course on Food Citizenship is a great opportunity to take a deeper look into the issues around the alternatives to our current, profit-oriented food system. There are ways how to foster a change while being an active food citizen. Besides, you can meet and connect to like-minded people from various countries, share your experiences and get to know great initiatives all around Europe!"



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.
