Stakeholder Involvement

„The Future of Urban Food“ aims to produce results that are relevant for society and to foster the discourse about the further development of the Viennese Urban Agro-food System. To achieve that, an intensive exchange between researchers and societal stakeholders is necessary and to ensure this exchange the project is accompanied by a transdisciplinary advisory board.

Advisory Board

The board is built of important stakeholders from the Viennese urban agro-food system and will continuously evaluate the research progress and provide important inputs for the single research activities.

The following organizations are currently represented within the Advisory Board:

  • Arbeiterkammer Wien
  • Biogast
  • Ernährungsrat Wien
  • Institut für Soziale Ökologie
  • Landwirtschaftskammer Wien
  • Landwirtschaftskammer Niederösterreich
  • Landwirtschaftskammer Österreich

  • Magistratsabteilung 24 (Gesundheits-, und Sozialplanung)
  • REWE Österreich

In addition „Future of Urban Food“ engages stakeholders in various other ways doing so, contributes to a societal discourse about the future of the WUAFS:

  • We survey and communicate the social acceptance of different food habits
  • We create together with several extended stakeholder groups scenarios for the WUAFSs in the year 2048
  • We discuss those scenarios in numerous ways with Viennese citizens
  • We develop concrete recommendations for politics and city administration
