The second FOSTER project meeting took place at the end of March in Novi Sad, Serbia, and was organized by the local partner BioSense Institute.
The focus was on the exchange of civil society-organized initiatives (cdi - citizen driven initiatives) - such as the Food Policy Council StadtRegion Stuttgart - with other cdi under the motto "Learning from each other" and learning with each other: Which political, which legal frameworks promote, and which inhibit the transformation of the food system locally? What opportunities for knowledge and science transfer exist locally in each case? Can engaged citizenship contribute to transformation?
During the further course of the project, a research and information platform will be established to study local and regional food systems.
