The Transition Toolkit brings together the work from FoodSHIFT2030, gathering the experiences, insights, methods, tools & lessons learned from across our 30 partners. This work spans nine European cities, each with unique food context, challenges & opportunities. Susmetro has co-created this toolkit together with the FoodSHIFT consortium to provide freely accessible resources to other cities and regions that would like to transform their food system for the better.
