GEF will bring together farmers and local actors to discuss how best to improve the distribution of fair and healthy food in the Moravia region.

Event Background

This roundtable discussion will be held as part of the GEF transnational project Fair and Healthy Food, which aims to bring together different actors within the food system to find alternative solutions and support positive changes to the Common Agricultural Policy of the European Union.

About the Event

The participants of this roundtable discussion will include important stakeholders in local food distribution systems, including local farmers, sellers, NGOs, politicians and community representatives.

The discussion will focus on how to promote the emergence of a sustainable system of production and distribution of healthy and organic local food in the southern Czech region of Moravia.

The experience of local farmers and producers and the barriers they face will be presented in the form of the results of a survey that GEF together with Institute for Active Citizenship has been conducting among them in Czech Republic throughout the past months. Furthermore, the roundtable will explore positive examples of food policies and systems elsewhere in Europe, such as in Ghent.

The outcomes of the debate will include a summary of recommendations for city authorities and politicians on how best to promote fair and healthy food in the Moravia region.
