White Paper – Gender in Cities Regions Food Systems

WP2 CRFS PHILOSOPHY: ethics, RRI and gender approach

White Paper - Gender in Cities Regions Food Systems


In The European Union there is a gender mainstreaming principle: the gender issues should be taken in consideration in all the matters. When interviewing foodrelated
professionals from Cities2030 pilot cities it was found that there was obvious need to raise awareness of the gender issues in CRFS. Obviously, there is still a need to deepen up the understanding of the gender matters.The gender matter is frequently considered as a woman matter. His way to look at gender narrows the view. The gender matter is a woman matter, man matter but also “the other sex” matter – matter of all humans. The structures of the CRFS should be built that way that all the variety of gender can fit in there where they want to fit. It is not only fitting women to the existing structures.
