The Arena Food & Water network meetings

In the Arena Food & Water Network we come together to discuss how to investigate  issues around food and water in Europe. Together with experts from journalism, academia, civil society and economy we look at data sources, reasearch and journalistic projects that can inspire further investigations and cross-border collaborations.

For everyone interested in the latest data and investigating issues around food and water across Europe, join us for our upcoming meetings.
