Anthology on local and regional food in the South Baltic region
One of the major outcomes of the collaboration of project partners will be a publication of an anthology in a book form, entitled “Interdisciplinary perspectives on local and regional food in the South Baltic region”. The anthology will cover history, current state and future trends in local and regional food production in the South Baltic regions of Lithuania, Denmark, Sweden and Germany. More specifically, it will elaborate on the concept of local and regional food, its underlying social and economic benefits for consumers and producers, and present some real cases. Overall, the anthology will build on lessons learned from the capacity building workshops and research conducted by project partners throughout the project life-time. As the project-team of RegFood consists of teachers/researchers from many different disciplines there will be a very broad view of the subject. Some of the chapters are perhaps a bit provocative too!
The anthology is also thought to be used for education, that can be given to students at universities studying small scale food production, or to small scale producers who would like to develop.
The anthology is planned to be released at the final conference on September 14 -15. The book will also be available at the RegFood website.
