The Role of Urban Food Systems in a Changing Climate

A Special Session at the C40 Summit in Copenhagen

Food production is responsible for nearly 27% of greenhouse gas emission globally. Thus, it is necessary to delve into the possible roles of urban food systems as means of decreasing the food imprint of our cities on the planet. During this event, we assess the approaches that citizens can take in order to fix our broken food systems through reshaping demand and influence bigger shifts on the production side.

By 2050, we will have 2.5 billion more people living in urban areas and they need fresh, safe and nutritious food. Let’s come together in Copenhagen to show that climate action can be a way of life: a way of innovating, a way of designing, a way of planning, and a way of thriving. Let’s explore our responsibilities together.

Live Like Tomorrow

Live Like Tomorrow is an open platform and invitation to citizens, change-makers, foodies, activists, bike enthusiasts, social entrepreneurs, innovators and NGOs to engage during the Summit. Cities and businesses can do a lot, but we can only build a healthy and resilient future if we act together – with citizens and consumers – and start to ‘live like tomorrow’. This series of events and initiatives will inspire conversations about our dreams of the future and will provide the space for honest and engaging debates about how we can all start to live like tomorrow.
The future belongs to all of us. Let’s find human solutions to global challenges. Let’s live like tomorrow.

We look forward to seeing you there!
