The right ingredients for a food council

In Ghent we have pioneered with a food policy council during the past six years. The group has evolved in the course of this time. The council has grown stronger, more decisive and has taken up great ownership of the food policy. The main ingredients to achieve this have been time and a participatory process. Participation takes time and patience. It is a continuous search for what works best, what the impact can be and how it can be best achieved. It requires flexibility and openness to change the team, modify the process and try - and fail if that's what it takes. But it is worth exploring how local governments can build policies and results through participation. And surely there is some great inspiration to be found in here for other companies and organizations...

Are you keen to explore the governance model and participative process that works for your own context? Let us explore together.
