Supporting Advanced Learning for Stakeholders Involved in sustainable Food systems Initiatives

What we are doing

SALSIFI aims to develop and implement an innovative transnational education program to increase the capacity of Community Supported Agriculture networks and civil servants at local, regional, national and EU levels to engage in collaborative public food policy-making processes. It will specifically look into upskilling staff in non-formal education to foster knowledge sharing; implement training to strengthen capacity building staff’s knowledge to engage in collaborative institutional processes; and to adapt the training into an innovative digital learning content for public authorities and other actors having influence on key aspects of local food initiatives (such as (green) public procurement, financing, etc.).

How we are tracking

SALSIFI will develop a modular training program (Output 1) addressing three themes: - building a collective understanding of how to engage in institutional processes and create relevant spaces for advocacy at EU level; - increasing participant understanding of how to collectively position at the local level; - sharing best practices for collaborative local policy making on sustainable food systems. The framework will be supported by a comprehensive tool kit (Output 2), and will be adapted into an innovative digital e-training content (Output 3). Cross-cutting through all outputs, a number of adult learners from the network members of the project, the Capacity Building Agents, aka "CABBAGES" will be engaged in training and learning activities developing their knowledge and skills to engage in collaborative food policy making processes. Modules will be specifically pilot-tested in 8 countries (E1-8), and the framework will be implemented by carrying out three training sessions addressing specific angles (C1-3). A larger event will disseminate the outcomes of the project and seek to attract future participation into the e-training content (E9).

What we are achieving

ICLEI’s contribution to the project is central in ensuring the civil servant target group is more effectively reached and involved in the project. ICLEI, will be providing key expertise for the outputs and participants, either as trainers or trainees, for the three trainings on best practices for collaborative policy-making on sustainable food systems.
