12th and 13th November at the Meriton Conference & Spa Hotel Tallinn, Toompuiestee 27 (Estonia) will be held StratKIT Baltic Sea Region Stakeholder Conference: A Taste of SustainabilityMobilizing Public Procurement and Catering Services in the Baltic Sea Region.

Today, there are lots of pressures for more sustainable food systems as a result of dietary changes, growing environmental awareness and an overall demand for healthier food. Public procurement and catering services can serve as trailblazers to respond to these pressures. These issues are addressed in a Baltic Sea Region project StratKIT (2019-2021) which is aiming to pool public actors’ co-learning and co-innovation resources for intensified policy implementation in terms of circular economy and climate neutrality in Finland, Estonia, Poland, Germany, Denmark and Russia. The project aims at developing the BSR dynamic sustainability model to signify the efforts by public procurement and catering services towards increased sustainability. The project discusses the relative merits and challenges of the practices, developments and initiatives in terms of the sustainability conditions for nutrition on the one hand, and environment and economy of the food system, on the other.

The two-day StratKIT Baltic Sea Region Stakeholder Round Table Event is a first international event in the StratKIT project that aims to bring together public procurers, catering service providers, public authorities, suppliers, customers and other stakeholders from different countries to co-learn about the current situation and to co-develop innovative strategies for the future! You are welcome to join and learn about new developments and to offer input shaping Public Catering Services towards sustainability in the Baltic Sea Region.
