You are cordially invited to participate in the webinar "MARKET CITIES: How public markets can pump life into regional food economies and forge social cohesion?", to be held virtually at 17:00 East Africa Time (EAT), 27th October 2020 (Verify your time zone here).



We will explore not only how to ensure that these long-overlooked institutions thrive, but explore creative measures to bring public markets to the next level — as civic conveners to connect rural to urban, social life to commerce, and behavior change into everyday people’s lives.



Amidst the COVID-19 lockdown, some markets fight to be recognized as essential services, whilst others perform remarkable heroics to relaunch as safe and social places (from Hanoi to Dhaka, Lima to New York).



Join us at this special session of the UN-Habitat “Strengthening Communities for the Future we want: urban-rural linkages policy, legislation and governance” webinar series, broadcast in partnership with Slow Food International, as part of the Terra Madre 2020 Worldwide Slow Food Festival.

Online registration is available here.
