Resilience Café 2: stress-testing the Luxembourg food system

In this particularly stressful period for our societies, the Centre for Ecological Learning Luxembourg (the Luxembourg Transition hub) is starting a series of Transition Cafes about resilience. As change is happening, what would be the next steps to build up / increase the resilience of our societies globally, but also at your doorstep? This series of zoom talks and exchanges is made for you: to be a space for connection, disruptive thinking and exchange of very concrete ideas and information. 

In this second Resilience Café session, Dr. Rachel Reckinger, who is researcher on sustainable food practices at the University of Luxembourg, will guide us through a number of essential questions, with a specific focus on the Luxembourg food system. What is the impact of the covid-19 induced stress test to our society as a whole on our understanding of the vulnerability and resourcefulness of our food system? Realizing now more than ever that the individual and collective food supply is an essential and vital cornerstone, what adaptations are necessary? Who needs to act at what level? How can WE help to adapt the food system as it is to what it should be?

Following weekly Resilience Café sessions with invited guest speakers will focus on focus on a couple of more specific topics. Feel free to send us your suggestions to
