EcoFoodMap Leuven: mapping the food system in and around Leuven

The Eco food map of Leuven is a user-friendly digital food system mapping tool that will allow a thorough understanding of the complexity of the food system in and around Leuven.

The Eco food map of Leuven is a user-friendly digital food system mapping tool that will allow a thorough understanding of the complexity of the food system in and around Leuven.

The tool aims to develop a complete overview of the entire system and the interactions amongst all the stakeholders. As a result, it will create a shared understanding that facilitates and stimulates dialogue and interaction amongst them. The overall goal of this project is to align all Leuven actors in the collective ambitions as described in the roadmap. The tool will help to define actions, efforts and roles to play to reach these goals collaboratively.

The tool will be developed as a dynamic and visual dashboard, displaying all relevant data along the food value chain. A modular design will allow modifications of the datasets and/or strategic parameters for decision making as well as the potential addition of future extensions.
