FFS 019 - World Sustainable Food Capital

Since 2015, more than 150 cities around the globe have come together to rethink the way we feed our cities.


As signatories to the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact, they share a commitment to developing sustainable food systems that are inclusive, resilient, safe and diverse. The city of Valencia, the 2017 World Sustainable Food Capital, is leading by example.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The history and vision of the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact
  • The role of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation in helping to realise this mission 
  • Why Valencia is the 2017 World Sustainable Food Capital
  • Why cities truly matter in the fight for sustainable food and food justice

We interview:

  • Guido Santini - United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (UN FAO)
  • Dorothee Fischer - International Press and Communications Manager - Valencia World Sustainable Food Capital 2017
  • Vincente Domingo - Commissioner of Valencia World Sustainable Food Capital
