After Denmark, we are in Sweden! And more precisely in Gothenburg which has been sacred capital of food by the Swedes. From the field to the plate and from canteens to restaurants, Gothenburg thinks sustainable. And as good investigators, we wonder how we do politically to develop the food system of an entire city and not just any kind: the second largest city in Sweden. So we will discuss this with Martin Berg, in charge of Urban Culture for the city of Gothenburg! By developing intra and peri-urban production, Gothenburg reduces its ecological footprint and promotes biodiversity. Beyond a global impact, these actions also have local consequences since they create jobs and revitalize relations between residents. In Gothenburg, more than 20% of people have expressed their wish to grow their own fruits and vegetables. The city has put at their disposal a set of land for community gardens and to develop their projects. It is thanks to those gardens that the famous falafel of Gothenburg is produced with chick peas grown locally and not imported. Only 20% of the food that feeds Île-de-France comes from the parisian region. It means that if oil runs out, Paris would only have a few days of food autonomy. Hence the interest of developing vegetable belts in and around big cities! And Gothenburg does not stop at local production! The city develops educational gardens in its schools to educate children about sustainable food. And if it has to buy products that come from far away, the municipality prefers them from the fair trade sector. The strength of Gothenburg’s political action is to have made local eating its warhorse while not forgetting that to develop a sustainable food system we must act on a wide variety of sectors: organic food, fairness, entrepreneurship, social inclusion and education. We hope you enjoyed this discovery. Do not hesitate to tag an institution, a city or a politician that could be inspired by Gothenburg!
