The two-day event will foresee a visit by bike and exploring the agro-park of Stene, which will be complemented, in the 25th of May, by a special focus on the multi-level food governance, food strategies and stakeholders’ participation, which will be enlarged to other experiences in Belgium, at regional and city level, confronted with those implemented in Lisbon, Berlin, Brasov and Bari.
