Transforming urban food systems: Unlocking the potential of open innovation in African cities

Co-hosted by ICLEI Europe and EStà as part of the AfriFOODlinks project, this session aims to put the spotlight on open innovation and its role in transforming urban food systems.
The session will present insights into what open innovation can bring to urban food systems and offer concrete examples from Està of their work within AfriFOODlinks. Expert organisations and local government representatives will be invited to share their perspectives and experience on how cities can unlock the untapped potential of open innovation in Africa.

The hope is to empower session participants with a better understanding of an unfamiliar and underexplored topic – open innovation – and to see how through reframing public policies that shape interactions between institutions, enterprises and social actors, cities can create an enabling environment for open innovation to flourish.
