Gender mainstreaming knowledge transfer
One of the main activities of the intensive workshop Food Wave/Eating City International Platform 2020-2030, held on the island of Cres in the premises of Moise Palace of the University of Rijeka, focused on gender equality in the agro-tech sector. The aim of the workshop was to explore the dynamics of power and gender and the crucial role of women in the development of sustainable food systems. The role of men in promoting gender equality and the creation of a policy framework for gender equality for food sector professionals across the EU was also a focus.

What would you do the same/differently another time?
What have you learnt? Do you see relevance for this in other contexts?
This activity was very fruitful and successful and should be continued. It was an opportunity to transfer knowledge and experience in gender mainstreaming from academia to food sector actors. It was very useful to realise that there are many challenges and areas of intervention that could be jointly addressed in the future (e. g. under-representation of women in leadership positions, visibility of women as key stakeholders, women innovators in rural communities, etc.).
