Abstract

Both at a national and European level, GREAT LIFE intends to raise awareness on the contribution of food consumption to adaptation and resilience. In fact, the aim of the project is to show how - through crops substitution and through the promotion of resilient food among consumers, GPP and public canteen - it is possible to effectively address EU adaptation priorities in the field of agriculture and rural development. GREAT LIFE approach looks at the whole value chain, certain that, for a successful achievement of the above stated impacts, it is necessary to simultaneously stimulate demand and supply, boosting the still niche market of resilient food.
