Mayors of Tallinn and Milan discuss cooperation opportunities
Visiting the European Basketball Championship in Milan, Tallinn Mayor Mihhail Kõlvart met with Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala to discuss cooperation on environmental issues and the growing role of cities in crisis management.
The Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP) is an international agreement among cities and at the same time a food policy tool that aims to develop sustainable food production through 37 different recommended actions divided into six categories. For example, there are actions that support sustainable food production, or actions that promote healthy eating. Each action also has its own metrics to monitor progress. The MUFPP was developed in 2014, when the then Mayor of Milan, Giuliano Pisapia, decided to put together an action plan to tackle food-related problems and challenges in cities that was as universal as possible. The Pact was signed by more than 100 city representatives during the 2015 Milan World Fair and is considered one of the most important outputs of the Milan World Fair.
The mayors of Tallinn and Milan also discussed the current situation in Europe, which is complicated by both the energy crisis and the crisis caused by the war in Ukraine.
