On March 16th, the second day of the Edible Cities Network conference in Barcelona, Xavier López was invited—together with Liz Castro, a green activist from Barcelona—to discuss how making cities more edible can help them become more sustainable. The discussion was part of “Avui Sortim”, a show airing on the Catalan station of the National Radio. The director of the Solidarity Foundation of the University of Barcelona pointed out that Edible City Solutions can not only relieve pressure on traditional agricultural systems, but they are also a great way to raise awareness about the importance of food and food production. According to him, one of the strengths of the Edible Cities Network is that it connects different actors— such as citizens, researchers, social entities and policy makers—interested in the topic on a global level.
