CCRI’s Dr Damian is a member of the Advisory Committee for the EU project FOODMETRES (‘Food Planning and Innovation for Sustainable Metropolitan Regions’), which aims to assess the environmental and socio-economic impacts of food chains with regard to the spatial, logistical and resource dimensions of growing food in metropolitan (urban) regions.
Damian has been asked by the project co-ordinators to give the opening speech at the FOODMETRES Conference on 24 September in Brussels. FOODMETRES is closely associated to food planning and governance themes which we are examining in two CCRI projects (GLAMUR and SUPURBFOOD), and Damian’s talk will draw together findings from all three projects to frame the discussion and policy questions for the day.
The conference is called ‘Towards a Territorial Approach for European Food Security’. More information about the conference.
