All citizens should be able to fill their plate with nutritious, safe, sustainable and affordable food. However, Europe’s urban areas are struggling to ensure availability and consumption of healthy, sustainable food among deprived and vulnerable groups. With this in mind, the EU-funded FoodCLIC project will create more sustainable urban food environments by building strong science–policy–practice interfaces (i.e. food policy networks) and experimenting with innovative approaches and business models in Living Labs across eight European city-regions. Activities will be supported by an innovative conceptual framework (the CLIC), which emphasises sustainability co-benefits, spatial linkages, social inclusion and sectoral connectivity. FoodCLIC will also support multi-stakeholder engagement, including deprived and vulnerable groups.
