This online workshop, hosted by Nathalie Markiefka and Judith Hitchmaan will provide space and opportunity for Irish and European initiatives to learn from and engage with URGENCI and rethink how we can re-organise local food systems in ways that are resilient, ecological and socially just.

  • Share and reflect on what is happening among food networks in Ireland at the national level;

  • Explore how Irish local food initiatives could best connect with, contribute to, participate in, and learn from, other solidarity food initiatives across Europe;

  • Learn how Irish initiatives can get involved and engage in URGENCI.


URGENCI, is an international network that brings together stakeholders engaged in local solidarity-based partnerships for agroecology. For more information on see –
