Event description
Join Edible Edinburgh on 16th February to explore how we can work together to put good food at the heart of Edinburgh's green recovery.

About this event

The Edible Edinburgh partnership invites you to attend What's Next? Putting Good Food at the Heart of Edinburgh's Green Recovery, the first in a series of city-wide food network events that focus on key food issues in Edinburgh.

This first event will identify some of the challenges Edinburgh's food system is currently facing, as a result of the pandemic, and explore what opportunities there are to work together to ensure good food is put at the heart of Edinburgh's green recovery. We will hear examples of successes from other Sustainable Food Places Network members followed by an opportunity to discuss priority action areas for Edinburgh.

Outcomes from this event will also feed into the refresh of Edinburgh's Sustainable Food City Plan as we work towards achieving the Sustainable Food Places Silver Award.

The event is open to individuals, food organisations and businesses that share an interest in working across all aspects of the food system to solve some of today's most pressing, social, environmental and economic issues. Whether you are a food business, community volunteer, interested citizen or any other organisation working in a relevant field, we would love to welcome you on 16th February and gather your views to make exciting plans for food in our city together.

We hope you can make it.

Edible Edinburgh is an initiative that aims to inspire and motivate everyone across Edinburgh to work together in developing new approaches to food, making positive choices that are healthier and tastier and which bring social, economic and environmental benefits to the whole community. Supported by a cross-sector steering group, it advocates for change in our food systems and provides a framework for action, funding and investment to realise the vision.
