Food as a collaborative commons

Nutritional security and sovereignty, ensuring good and sustainable food for everyone needs an understanding of food as a “collaborative commons”. The food system of the future has to be driven by collaborative local networks, organized in more sustainable and equitable arrangement where economic profit is not the driver. It has to be based on cultural, environmental and social values and be realized in individual collaborative initiatives. An open dialogical culture and individual binding arrangements regulate the collaboration and balance the different interests of the participants along the foodcycle.
