The online signing event will include speeches from Wellington Mayor Andy Foster, Councillor Laurie Foon, City of Sydney’s Councillor Jess Miller, and Vice-Mayor of the City of Milan, Anna Scavuzzo.
Launched by the Milan Municipality in 2015, the MUFPP’s main aim is to support cities wishing to develop more sustainable urban food systems by fostering city to city cooperation and best practices exchange.
“Being a part of this international agreement demonstrates our commitment to sustainable food systems so no-one goes hungry, everyone can eat healthily, we minimise waste, protect the environment and reduce our carbon footprint,” says Councillor Laurie Foon.
“Supporting access to local food is a global movement so it is great to be able to join forces with so many countries around the world, and sharing ideas, techniques and innovations is the key to us improving every part of the food chain from turf to surf.”
The MUFPP is not legally binding, provides a platform for the sharing of best practice, and has no financial commitment.
Due to COVID restrictions, speeches and the signing of the form will only be available to view online here.
