I will join this hybrid event in Frankfurt, Germany online, organized by the Placemaking Europe, to explore how the Market Cities' ecosystem approach to public markets can better position cities as pivotal conveners of territorial food systems, centers for social cohesion, and importantly, safe gathering places in the pandemic world.
