Exploring the Impact COVID-19 Has Had on Food Systems in European Cities The Cork Food Policy Council is collaborating with the Let's Food Cities project, a European collaboration to encourage city to city cooperation for sustainable food systems. As part of this collaboration, a questionnaire has been launched to explore the impact COVID-19 has had on the food systems across a number of European cities, including Cork. We want to identify what adaptation measures are being taken, and what are the perspectives from different agencies, organisations, and community groups for the after-crisis.
The Cork Folklore Project, a community-based oral history archive (www.corkfolklore.org) supported by Béaloideas/Folklore and Ethnology, is collecting testimony of the pandemic on a range of online platforms in its ‘Chronicles of COVID-19’ collection initiative. We invite people living anywhere in Ireland, or with links to Ireland, to add their voice and experiences to this record, so that they and future generations can access the experiences of these days through descriptions of our daily routines, preoccupations, challenges, jokes and stories.
By signing its open letter to Cork City and County Council's, your organisation / group can join the Transport Mobility Forum in calling for specific measures to be put in place as part of the return to a more open city and county as the Covid19 restrictions are lifted.
