We are what we eat. Food is at the centre of many of the challenges that must be faced on a global scale, both from a health, social or ecological standpoint. Emissions from the food system, which now stand at between 21 and 37%, could rise to 38% by 2050. Cities, which are the big consumers of this system, play a strategic role in this process.
Aware of this fact, Barcelona will host the 7th Global Forum of the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP) the 19-21 October to promote the need to make a change in the food model. The event will be held in hybrid format with a physical part at the Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB) and the possibility to follow all the sessions online via streaming. The Forum is part of the program designed by Barcelona as the 2021 World Capital of Sustainable Food.
