How we eat changes the world. The way we act in relation to food affects us on every level. And it’s common knowledge that today things are not looking so good. We need major changes – innovative solutions that point to a sustainable food supply system. We also need new ways of thinking about food: how we eat, why we eat what we do, and how we can move in new directions in dealing with food issues that impact on our society.
On November 13, we bring you a very special evening with three entrepreneurs and changemakers whose goal is to establish a sustainable food system in the Western Balkans and in Sweden. They have participated in a three-year initiative by the Swedish Institute.
The night will explore local food production; where and how we grow it, how we coordinate the sale and distribution of it, and how we prepare and consume it. Dinner will be served by Gastronaut Catering – recently awarded “Best International Dining Experience 2020” and “Most Socially Conscious Caterer” by Lux Life.
As usual, doors open at 17.30 and at 18.00 we will kick off the night by introducing #SthlmFoodMovement and then hearing from our wonderful speakers using food as a vehicle for change. This event will explore the initiatives that have been born from Food For Tomorrow and there will be plenty of time to mingle. Join us to foster new friendships and opportunities with food entrepreneurs from Sweden and abroad.
