Also, representatives of the Ribadeo City Council and the Lugo Provincial Council, the body that finances the Eo Sustainable Food Festival, which will be held on September 23 and 24 in different spaces in Ribadeo. Two days that will combine leisure and awareness around local and agroecological food, through different activities and proposals (concerts, workshops, performance, tastings, fair, etc.) that will provide answers to the main challenges that we currently face in relation to the model of food production, distribution and consumption.
The Eo Alimenta Food Strategy, which will also be presented that day, was drawn up in a participatory manner during the first phase of the project, and consists of a document with 11 measures and 33 actions to promote local consumption, agroecological production and awareness around the importance of a local food model for our health.
Eo Alimenta now begins its implementation phase, in a socio-political context that highlights the need to move towards local production, distribution and consumption models that can withstand the instability of the global economy.
