Learn more about the partnership and how to get involved
Food Cities 2022 Learning Partnership is an exciting new initiative that supports cities to develop and implement city led food policies and action plans. We are building a network of cities who are developing their food agendas, with a particular focus on low to middle income countries in the Commonwealth. Through the partnership, we will be offering responsive support and advice through a combination of events, resources, peer-to-peer learning and access to experts. See here for the Food Cities 2022 Concept Note.
Cities who join the Food Cities Learning Partnership will receive the following benefits:
- Templates for policy briefings, action plans and strategies
- Access to the learning platform which will host webinars and activities in the run up to the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham (2022)
- Active participation in events and an opportunity to present challenges, opportunities and expertise
- Advocacy support to secure senior leadership commitment and resources to encourage political buy-in
- Opportunities for peer-to-peer learning as well as mentoring by partnership organisations
- Participation in international meetings such as COP26, UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS), MUFPP, Nutrition For Growth and the Commonwealth Games which will be held in Birmingham, UK
- Introductions to national and international policy makers and agencies to support food policy development and implementation
The Learning Partnership model was initially piloted in the BINDI project, a partnership between Birmingham, UK and Pune, India. The success of this project led to the Food Cities 2022 Learning Partnership. You can read more about BINDI here.
