In preparation for Luxembourg’s future Food Policy Council (FPC), the Sustainable Food Practices Research Project of the University of Luxembourg would like to hear your opinion and invites you to participate in the Food Policy council survey.

The idea of a nation-wide, participative Food Policy Council (FPC) for Luxembourg has been inspired by connecting with and visiting other such food policy councils in the neighbouring countries, and through engaging with food system stakeholders in Luxembourg. 

Dr. Rachel Reckinger (University of Luxembourg) and Norry Schneider (CELL – Centre for Ecological Learning Luxembourg, The Transition Hub) have been instrumental in the scoping out of such a Council. Uniting all stakeholders within the food system will bring about innovation through constructive debates and teamwork and create a more socially and environmentally just, economically sound, high quality local food system. Such a Food Policy Council would also deliver on the intention embedded in the Luxembourg Accord de Coalition.

To find out about key actors’ as well as the general public’s knowledge about Food Policy Councils and their hopes and expectations for such a council on a national scale in Luxembourg, the Sustainable Food Practices team at the University of Luxembourg designed a survey in partnership with CELL. 

The project team would appreciate your contribution until 30 September 2021 by taking the survey online.

Your opinion will help shape the foundation of the Food Policy Council of Luxembourg.
