Event description
Urban hinterland and the re-creation of local food systems and co-creative landscapes

About this Event

Welcome to a conference in Gothenburg held by the EIT Climate-KIC financed project of SATURN. We invite you to two days of joint knowledge production, visioning and sharing focusing on the urban-rural food system and how regions, cities, municipalities and other public and private landowners can support the rise of a local peri-urban food scene.

22nd of September 2020 Field trip “the farming ecosystem of Gothenburg”

Come along on a bus trip from urban Gothenburg to rural Alingsås. We will explore how the interplay between public actors, local communities and new entrepreneurs during a longer period of time have re-created a relationship between the urban and rural geography and increased local food production. The pilot cases in the Gothenburg Hub of SATURN has been an important piece in this process. The four pilot cases: The testbeds, the Model Farm, the Farming Incubator and the mapping of underutilized and abandoned farmland alongside road 190 together forming a “ecosystem” for lowering thresholds for new farming entrepreneurs, the most important part of a local food system.

We meet in central Gothenburg (yet to be decided) 8.00 and we will be back around 17.30

Practical information: Lunch and coffee will be served during the day. There is a maximum of 50 participants

23rd of September 2020 Conference & workshop

Join the SATURN project for a full day in Gothenburg on best practices, pilot cases and discussions around models and methods for strengthening the peri-urban food systems. A multitude of international, national and local stakeholders from private and public sector, academia and NGO’s will participate and together we will create an opportunity for co-creation and learning on this urgent and important topic.
