ZALF mit INRAe in Avignon

Hauptinhalt der Seite



Foodshift Avignon

How can systems thinking be translated into collaborative action and strategic planning around the regional food system? After being invited by INRAe, Beatrice Walthall and José Luis Vicente-Vicente travelled with this guiding question to Avignon. In Avignon, researcher form INRAe and ZALF shared insights and research results from their work in the FoodSHIFT2030 project​.​​

​To connect theory with practice, a look beyond the end of one's nose was useful. In this respect, five innovative projects were visited, all of which seek to foster a more sustainable food system around Avignon. The spectrum of projects ranged from a logistical platform for the procurement of regional products for community catering and restaurants (Endirect de nos fermes), to a permaculture garden (Le Tipi) and a solidarity supermarket (Supermarché Solidaire), among other projects.​

Conclusion of the exchange: A site visit provides an excellent opportunity to understand the local challenges and what solution-oriented role strategic collaboration and diverse actors can play in the food system. ​A detailed report of the visit to Avignon is available here​:
