Sustainable Food Cities

Last month the Soil Association launched its Sustainable Food Cities Network, which will help cities across the UK develop sustainable food initiatives. Speaking in support, Professor Kevin Morgan of Cardiff University said:
“Having lagged behind places such as North America and Europe, there are now UK cities leading the way in terms of the breadth and innovation of their food programmes. While the focus of these programmes varies depending on local circumstances and priorities, there are some common themes emerging - around the need to really engage and involve the public; on the power of truly collaborative cross-sector partnerships; and in recognising the fundamental link between health and sustainability.”
In Cardiff, the BOBL project is supporting a new Cardiff Food Charter which will engage local people. For more details contact .
