Lyon's involvement in the European project Sustainable Food in Urban Communities

The topic proposed by Lyon relates to sustainable food in urban zones via the development of low-carbon-emission food systems which are efficient in the use of resources.  Attention is focussed on actions which favour responsible and sustainable consumption associated with food(local production, distribution…), in particular on projects with a social purpose concerning populations with few resources.
