Lisboa e.nova organizes session on AML Agri-Food Parks Network on March 8th

Lisboa e.nova - Lisbon's Energy and Environment Agency is organizing an information session on the climate emergency and proximity food systems on March 8 (Tuesday) at 2 p.m. via videoconference.

Filipe Ferreira, from the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, Rosário Oliveira, from the Institute of Social Sciences at the University of Lisbon, and Carlos Pina, from the Lisbon and Tagus Valley Regional Coordination and Development Commission, are the guest speakers.

The session will cover the Lisbon Metropolitan Area Agri-Food Parks Network, recently founded by twenty local, regional and national organizations.

In this session, which is free of charge but requires pre-registration, you will learn about the network's constitution, its concept and strategic vision, and how its members intend to leverage the food transition in the Lisbon metropolitan area.

The Lisbon Metropolitan Area Agri-Food Park Network aims to plan and manage the food system of agri-food parks, and will operate through a collaborative platform of public and private entities that pursue principles of sustainability, with a view to providing safe, healthy, inclusive and responsible food for the metropolitan population.

It will promote a circular, resilient and local economy, create jobs, promote health and well-being and respect social equity. It will also be a pillar of the Mediterranean diet, reinforce cultural identity, encourage scientific and technological innovation, increase food literacy and the transition to digitalization, and contribute to the training, capacity building and awareness-raising of active agents in the food system.

Registration, which is free but subject to validation, can be done here.
