Adolescents show one of the highest rates of ultra-processed foods and drinks (UPF) consumption, and studies indicate an association between their consumption and internalizing problems. We aim to investigate whether UPF consumption associates with dysfunctions in other psychosocial domains, as well as sex effects. In 560 Spanish adolescents (14–17...

The COVID-19 pandemic unveiled the fragility of food sovereignty in cities and confirmed the close connection urban dwellers have with food. Although the pandemic was not responsible for a systemic failure, it suggested how citizens would accept and indeed support a transition toward more localized food production systems. As this attitudinal shift...

Project
The project FoodE (Food Systems in European Cities) is funded by the European Commission within the H2020-SFS-24 call "Innovative and citizen-driven food system approaches in cities" and coordinated by Prof. Francesco Orsini (Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences and Technologies of the University of Bologna, Italy). The project objective is to accelerate the growth of citizen-led urban food system initiatives by bringing local initiatives across Europe together, as well as co-developing and disseminating a range of tools - co-designed with academia, citizens, and food system start-ups - to ensure that the most up-to-date cross-sectorial knowledge is applied. Start-ups will also provide an in-depth understanding of the needs of the key stakeholders, making resilient citizen-driven food systems happen. The key challenge of FoodE project is then to aggregate the most sustainable models of Urban Food Systems (UFS) and enable co-creation of innovative pilot experiences, fostering the health and wellbeing of European citizens. This challenge will be tackled by setting a co-created mechanism, based on Citizen Science and Responsible Research and Innovation principles, where public authorities, citizens, business actors and non-profit organisations share ideas, tools, best practices and new models, supporting cities in becoming innovative food hubs. The outputs of FoodE will impact on job creation, promotion of local economy, strengthening the role of local communities in complying with Sustainable Development Goals, as well as identifying and strengthening relations between the different actors of the food chain. The way used by FoodE to achieve this goals consists of the following steps: -Assess and rank sustainability of diverse typologies of urban food systems -Actively involve citizens in co-creating and choosing innovative Urban Food Systems -Implement pilot innovative sustainable UFS in several EU cities -Implement and validate a citizen-science based methodology fostering public-private partnerships in UFS -Develop a set of policy briefs, guidelines and recommendations -Address civil society, academy and public/private stakeholders.
