Are you an MSc, PhD or Early Career Researcher working on food systems issues? Do you want to showcase your research and network with other scholars and practitioners at a leading international symposium? If so, we invite you to submit a poster proposal for the 2024 City Food Policy Symposium, which will take place on April 18th 2024, at City, University of London in London, UK.

The symposium will explore the potential for food systems transformation and increased resilience through local and regional food policy. Discussions will reflect on how local and regional activity can meaningfully contribute to just and resilient food systems that support environmental sustainability, human and animal health, and an inclusive economy.

We welcome poster proposals that address any of the following themes:

  • How local and regional approaches can lead to more diverse and resilient food systems.
  • Co-benefits and trade-offs of integrated local-regional approaches to food policy and governance.
  • Interactions between local, regional, and multinational food systems interventions.
  • Practical experiences and highlights of regional food networks.
  • The opportunities to enhance existing local and regional food systems initiatives.

The poster session will be an interactive and engaging part of the symposium, where you will have the opportunity to present your research to a diverse and knowledgeable audience, receive feedback, and exchange ideas. Each poster will have a 2-minute oral presentation as part of the poster session. Poster numbers are limited and selection will be a competitive process based on the quality and relevance of the proposals.
