Ohrid, 6000 Macedonia

Food is an integral part of all of our daily lives, but how can we make sure that the food that ends up on our plate is fair and healthy? Save the date for our event in Macedonia exploring just how we can achieve such a food system!

Event Background

The GEF transnational project Fair and Healthy Food aims to bring together different actors to find alternative solutions and positive changes to our current food systems. 

Alongside exploring examples of urban movements developing progressive food policies, the project will also examine how regional sustainable food systems can revitalise rural communities.
